Make it three: It appears Hulshof will join Kinder, Steelman in GOP governor battle

Published reports indicate Rep. Kenny Hulshof will declare his candidacy for the Republican nomination for governor Tuesday, joining Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and State Treasurer Sarah Steelman in a battle royal:

He’s going to make a major announcement about the future of Missouri tomorrow,” John Hancock, a Missouri GOP consultant, said Monday night.

Hancock declined to say what the congressman’s plans were, but other Republicans said he was in the race and had begun calling top donors.

Many Republicans expect Hulshof to be a significant player in the race and regard him as an early favorite for the GOP nomination
