Missouri’s powerful Senate Majority Leader will not run for Congress next fall.

Majority Leader Caleb Rowden (R-Columbia), who represents Boone and Cooper counties in Jefferson City, says an overwhelming number of friends and neighbors have encouraged him to run for west-central Missouri’s fourth congressional district, which will open because U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler is running for the U.S. Senate.

Leader Rowden says he can deliver more substantive conservative wins for Missourians in the state Senate. You can read his full statement here.

Rowden is expected to be Senate President Pro Tem in January 2023. Republicans currently control that chamber 24-10.
