Former Sen. John Dan­forth (D) on Thursday en­dorsed Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R), “who he views as the strongest GOP con­tender for gov­ernor.”

“Dan­forth pre­vi­ously had been a strong sup­port­er of” state Aud­it­or Tom Sch­weich’s (R) “bid for gov­ernor, and had been dev­ast­ated by Sch­weich’s sui­cide in Feb­ru­ary, just a month after his cam­paign kick­off.” (KW­MU-FM)

FREE PUB­LI­CITY. A new book out from TIME colum­nist Joe Klein “is an ab­so­lute gift to a can­did­ate largely un­known in Mis­souri.” Former Navy SEAL Eric Greit­ens (R) “star­ted a St. Louis-based or­gan­iz­a­tion called The Mis­sion Con­tin­ues, which provides paid pub­lic ser­vice fel­low­ships for wounded vet­er­ans.”

“The book chron­icles Greit­ens’ path to start­ing this worthy or­gan­iz­a­tion and the suc­cess it’s had. And it does something more too — it’s a test­a­ment to Greit­ens’ char­ac­ter, re­solve, tenacity and tough­ness. His all-Amer­ic­an good­ness just oozes forth on page after page. All those traits, by the way, just might serve a new gov­ernor well.” (Kan­sas City Star)
