JEFFERSON CITY — Another Republican said Monday that she is entering the race to replace Kenny Hulshof in Congress.

Rep. Danie Moore, of Fulton, is the second Republican to officially announce that she is running to represent the 9th Congressional District. It’s an expansive district that stretches from northeast Missouri and the western St. Louis suburbs all the way to the Lake of the Ozarks.

Moore is finishing her fourth term in the Missouri House and is term-limited. She also was a teacher.

Moore said her top priority is national security. She has called for Congress to renew a law that makes it easier for the government to spy on foreign phone calls and e-mails passing through the U.S.

“I am one woman who wants to fight this war against these fanatics who want to do us in,” she said.

Moore and her husband own two businesses in Columbia — an indoor shooting range and a storage facility.

Hulshof, a Republican, is not seeking re-election because he is running for governor.

Former football player Brock Olivo announced last week in Hermann that he is also seeking the Republican nomination.

Several Democrats are interested in the seat in Congress as well.

Running so far are Steve Gaw, a former House speaker and Public Service Commission member from Moberly, and Marion County Presiding Commissioner Lyndon Bode. Rep. Judy Baker, of Columbia, hasn’t officially announced whether she’s running but has been raising money since before Hulshof decided to not seek re-election.
