Springfield attorney and Iraqi veteran Steve Fenner is seriously considering a run for Greene County Prosecutor.
Fenner, an assistant prosecutor with the country from 1996 to 1999 is now runs his own private practice. Fenner tells The Notebook that he's carefully weighing a campaign, but has to look into "some practical considerations" before making a final decision.
"I am seriously considering a run for that office," Fenner said. "I am meeting with friends, family and potential supporters to get a feel for the level of support I would have. So far I have been pleasantly surprised," he said.
On his Facebook page, Fenner describes himself as a "moderate Republican." He served a tour in Iraq with the U.S Naval Reserve from 2007 to 2008.
Greene County prosecutor Darrell Moore is expected to enter the race for Congress Thursday afternoon.
