Nauser to run for 24th District Mo. House seat

*CORRECTION: This blog has been corrected to accurately reflect when Rep. Chris Kelly has served in the Missouri House of Representatives.

Fifth Ward Councilwoman Laura Nauser filed today for the 24th District seat in the Missouri House of Representatives.

Nauser, who was elected to City Council in 2005 and is serving her second term, will run for the Republican nomination. She said she finalized her decision last week. This is Nauser’s first bid for a state office.

Rep. Chris Kelly, the Democrat who currently holds the seat, has not yet filed but told the Missourian he will run for re-election. Kelly was elected to the house in 1982, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1992, and most recently in 2008*.

We will continue to update this story as we gather more information.

  1. To nitpick just a bit, this is not Chris’ first term as state rep. He served a couple terms before term limits were enacted by the voters.
