Missouri Congressmember Blaine Luetkemeyer says he will consider a 2016 run for governor after his re-election bid this year for the U.S. House.
The Republican from Missouri's 3rd Congressional District said Monday he has been encouraged by party members, donors and friends to consider running for governor.
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon is barred by term limits from seeking re-election. But others already are positioning to succeed him.
