Colonel Jack Is Back


Colonel Jack Jackson will officially declare his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor Friday at a press conference in Jefferson City at 10:30 a.m.

Jackson was unsuccessful in his 2006 bid for State Auditor. He lost to Sandra Thomas in the Republican primary.

In a press release today, the retired Marine Corps Colonel said, "The position of Lieutenant Governor will allow me to continue my mission as a leader and advocate for military veterans, their families and senior citizens."

Late last year, Jackson had flirted with the possibility of running for Governor. He did some private polling, but after a meeting with Governor Matt Blunt, he decided against it.

Jackson served in the Missouri House from 2002 to 2006. You can read more about him at his website
