Nodler considering bid for statewide office
We should have seen this one coming.
32nd District State Senator Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, has filed papers with the Missouri Ethics Commission indicating he may seek statewide office in 2012.
Nodler, who will begin his second and final term in January, indicated on the document, which was scanned into the state system Dec. 7, (providing another constant reminder of a date that will live in infamy) that he will seek an "undetermined" state office in the Aug. 7, 2012 primary.
The filing was made only a week after Nodler filed papers indicating he would run for an "undetermined" statewide office in August 2010. Apparently, he decided had no interest in running for state auditor. That filing also indicated that Tom Flanigan is no longer serving as Nodler's treasurer, and has been replaced by Joncee Nodler, the senator's wife.
