There’s another name to consider in the race for the highest office in the state. Cole County resident Rik Combs has secured the nomination as the Libertarian Party candidate for Governor. Combs is an Air Force veteran, having served for parts of three decades in the military. He won the nomination at the party’s annual convention held in St. Louis, securing 76 percent of the vote from convention delegates. Incumbent Republican Mike Parson and State Auditor Democrat Nicole Galloway have also announced bids for the office.
