As of Feb. 9, Grassroots for Hunter is open for business once more.
Former 127th District State Rep. Steve Hunter, R-Joplin, filed documentation with the Missouri Ethics Commission that day, indicating he intends to seek "statewide office" in August 2010. That does not necessarily mean Hunter, who served four terms in the House, is actually going to run for anything, but it does allow him to raise funds. The treasurer for the committee is Hunter's wife, Rita, the former Jasper County public administrator.
Steve Hunter is now a registered lobbyist.
