Missouri Gov. Mike Parson formally announced Sunday he’s running for a full term as the state's chief executive. This will be the first time he campaigns for that office, because he ascended to the post after former Gov. Eric Greitens resigned last year amid scandal. 

In his hometown of Bolivar, Parson, a Republican, officially announced his 2020 gubernatorial bid in front of a crowd of supporters who had gathered in the local high school.
