COLUMBIA, — Former congressman Kenny Hulshof isn't letting his unsuccessful attempt to lead the University of Missouri system keep him out of University Hall.
Public records obtained by The Associated Press show that Hulshof has met with university president Gary Forsee at least three times in recent months at Forsee's campus office. Both men declined to discuss the private sessions.
Hulshof was one of three finalists for the four-campus system's top job in 2007. University curators later hired Forsee after their preferred candidate from the initial three finalists declined the job.
Hulshof is a Columbia Republican and former special state prosecutor who spent six terms in Congress. He won the Republican nomination for governor in 2008, but lost in the general election to Democrat Jay Nixon.
