Ex-aide to Ike Skelton plans run for Missouri secretary of state

JEFFERSON CITY — An aide to former Democratic Congressman Ike Skelton said he plans to run for Missouri secretary of state.

Ryan Dillon, of Rolla, said Monday that he intends to make job creation and an "open political process" the themes of his campaign.

Dillon is the second Democrat to enter the race to replace Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, who is not seeking re-election next year.

Three Republicans have already declared their candidacies — state Sens. Scott Rupp and Bill Stouffer, and state Rep. Shane Schoeller.

The party primaries will be held in August.
