Kansas City, Missouri — US Senator Roybrandt (R-Mo.) Announced Monday morning that he would not run for re-election in 2022.
State senator Brandt posted an announcement on supporters and social media Monday morning.
“After 14 general election wins, 3 county offices, 7 US House of Representatives elections, and 4 state-wide elections, I’m not a candidate for re-election to the US Senate next year. I read the announcement.
Brant, 71, was first elected to the state legislature in 1985 and served as Secretary of State for Missouri for 12 years. Since 1997, he has served seven terms in Missouri’s Seventh Parliamentary District.
After the retirement of Senator Christopher S. Bond, Brandt ran for and won the US Senator in 2011. He was reelected in 2016 as Democratic challenger Jason Kander.
Brant’s announcement is likely to pave the way for a highly competitive Republican primary in 2022 to represent the state in the Senate with the addition of Missouri’s other senator, Josh Hawley.
“I would like to thank my family and the wonderful team that helped me work for you,” Brant said in a statement. For a better future for you, our state and our country.
“I still have a lot to do. I’m still working for you in the Senate, so I’m looking forward to every day this year and next year.
