A local Republican quickly throws her hat in the ring for state rep.
Sara Walsh (pictured) announced early Wednesday she wants to replace Caleb Jones in the 50th District. Governor-elect Greitens has named Jones as his deputy chief of staff.
Jones, a Columbia native, has served southern Boone, and parts of Cole, Moniteau and Cooper counties in the House since 2011.
The governor will have to call a special election to fill Jones’ seat.
