The former Missouri Republican Party Chair and Springfield Republican Committeeman tells the KY3 Political Notebook that if he dives in, Congressman Roy Blunt will be the Republican to beat in the race to replace Sen. Kit Bond.
"I think if Roy wants it, he will be very, very difficult to beat," Tom Fowler, pictured on the right, said Friday.
Asked how Sen. Jim Talent's potential candidacy would impact Blunt's, Fowler repeated, "If Roy wants it, he will be the man to beat."

"I haven't even thought about that yet," said Rep. Jay Wasson, when asked whether he'd consider a bid for the 7th Congressional District if Blunt jumps into the U.S. Senate race. "But Roy's still my Congressman right now, and that my name is even being bantered about is just an honor."
