Galloway Jumps In 2020 Gubernatorial Contest, Setting Up Likely Matchup Against Parson

State Auditor Nicole Galloway officially launched her 2020 gubernatorial bid on Monday morning, emphasizing her record as Missouri’s lone Democratic statewide official and criticizing how a GOP-controlled government has operated.

While Galloway will likely have little competition capturing the Democratic nomination for governor, she will face a challenge from a state that leans toward the GOP — and the current governor's financial advantage.

Galloway’s announcement via a web video stressed her biography as a Fenton native and tenure as state auditor. She points out how her office uncovered government fraud and abuse and discovered misdeeds that sent public officials to jail.

She also criticized the GOP-controlled legislature for passing a ban on most abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy — and for trying to place a new state legislative redistricting system on the 2020 ballot after voters approved the measure along with other ethics overhauls in 2018.

2. K&R!

I've noticed her name in Missouri politics and it appears like she will be a great candidate for governor.
