JEFFERSON CITY — President Barack Obama will be on the ballot for Missouri's Democratic presidential primary next year.

Obama filed to run in the Missouri primary this week. Eight Republican candidates also have filed for Missouri's primary.

Missouri's primaries are scheduled for Feb. 7, about one month earlier than allowed by the national Republican and Democratic parties. State lawmakers had considered delaying and even cancelling the votes. Those efforts failed, so the primaries will go forward.
