Hartzler Files Against Skelton

Former state representative Vicky Hartzler has filed a statement of candidacy to run against Rep. Ike Skelton in 2010.
CQ Politics notes THIS filing shows Hartzler appears to be ramping up for a race.

She was a spokeswoman for an organization that promoted a 2004 state constitutional amendment, overwhelmingly passed by voters, that banned same-sex marriage.

On Friday, Hartzler confirmed to CQ that she has submitted FEC paperwork and is "in the beginning stages of putting together my campaign team."

Skelton, the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, has been politically dominant in his 17 terms. He won 66 percent of the vote in 2008, the 15th time in 16 re-election campaigns that he has topped 60 percent of the vote.
