TAKE A LOOK AT THE TOP CONTENDERS FOR GOV. JAY'S LT. GOV. APPOINTMENT ACCORDING TO MISSOURI POLITICAL INSIDERS!!!
There are a few more names being thrown around but everybody seems to agree on these three . . .
1. Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders - First of all, The Democratic Party Chair loves it when anybody mentions his name and he appreciates appearing at the top of any list. In this case, it seems he might deserve the mention given his reasonably close connection with Gov. Jay. Secondly, The County Exec loves to win elections but hates political opponents . . . So an appointment would be a perfect opportunity that seems much more pleasant than facing the curse of 3 Jackson County terms.
2. Jeff Harris - He's one of Gov. Jay's top lawyer dudes and he would be a safe pick if Missouri Republicans don't find a way to steal this one from Missouri's NO Veto Leader.
3. Victor Callahan - Another appointment for the most fearsome politico in Eastern Jack would be appropriate given that he really doesn't seem like a "commission nerd" no matter how hard he might try. Missouri Insiders also noticed the close proximity that Outgoing State Senator Victor Callahan had with the Gov. during the inauguration. A choice spot on stage next to the Gov. shows that Mr. Callahan is anything but an outsider no matter his job title.
And so . . . We'll have to wait for the final selection but it's clear that the Kansas City area will play an imortant part in what could be a controversial Missouri appointment.
