Former Democratic state lawmaker starts campaign committee for bid for Missouri treasurer


JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri — A former Missouri Democratic state lawmaker has formed a campaign committee for a bid for treasurer in 2016.

Former House member Judy Baker launched the committee this past week. Her committee's treasurer says she hasn't yet officially announced her candidacy.

A call to Baker, of Columbia, wasn't immediately returned Monday.

Baker previously worked as director of the Kansas City regional office of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. She has made unsuccessful bids for lieutenant governor and U.S. Congress.

Baker would join fellow Democrat Pat Contreras and Republican state Sen. Eric Schmitt in a campaign for treasurer.

Contreras is from Kansas City and says he worked for the U.S. Department of State.

Schmitt, of Glendale, is the only declared Republican running for treasurer.
