Spence Waiting on Kinder Decision

After a report indicated that he raised the possibility of running for governor even if Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder does, Missouri Republican businessman Dave Spence appears to have backed off a bit. The key nugget in Monday's St. Louis Post-Dispatch story:

The Kirkwood High grad even told KMOX last week that he would not rule out challenging Kinder in a primary, though he walked those sentiments back in a conversation with the Post-Dispatch.

"I'm just waiting for the dust to settle on whatever Peter's going to do," Spence said.

Kinder told the American Spectator in late September that he would have an announcement "in four to eight weeks," a time line that means a decision would be made sometime this month.
