Former Ambassador and GOP fundraising insider had informally announced her intentions in May.
As a local politico and self-proclaimed “hometown girl,” Ann Wagner of Ballwin has worn many hats. She’s served as a member of the Lafayette Township Committee, she’s chaired the Missouri Republican Party, and she's co-chaired the Republican National Committee. She served as the United States Ambassador to Luxembourg before an unsuccessful bid to lead the RNC earlier this year.

Todd Akin runs for the U.S. Senate. Akin, a Republican from Town and Country, may announce his candidacy Tuesday in Creve Coeur. “I give courtesy to the congressman while he holds that seat,” Cunningham said. “And as of now, he still holds that seat. It’s not open until he announces.” Cunningham's state Senate district includes parts of St. Louis County, including parts of Creve Coeur. Cunningham said it was important to send “a conservative” to Washington, D.C. She pointed to a successful ballot initiative – known as Proposition C – that passed last year aimed at …
