JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Democratic State Auditor Susan Montee says she plans to seek re-election in 2010.
Montee said Thursday that she recently had discussions with President Barack Obama's administration about going to work as a federal auditor.
But Montee says she has decided to remain as state auditor and to seek a second term.
Montee was elected auditor in 2006 to succeed Democrat Claire McCaskill, who won election to the U.S. Senate that year. Montee previously served as Buchanan County Auditor.
The only Republican to have set up a fundraising committee for the 2010 auditor's race is state Sen. Matt Bartle, of Lee's Summit. But Bartle has not announced his candidacy.
