Mo. Treasurer Steelman announces re-election bid

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- State Treasurer Sarah Steelman kicks off her re-election campaign.

The Republican used the kitchen of her parents' home in Jefferson City to announce she is seeking a second term.

She says the kitchen from her childhood reminds her of the lively political discussions that occurred there, where everyone's opinion was important.

Steelman is promoting her work to bar state investments in companies with terrorism connections and to expand a college savings program for families.

In 2004, Steelman defeated Democrat Mark Powell.

Powell also is running for treasurer this year.
