KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - Is Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt eyeing a higher office?

After new campaign filings on the FEC website stated “Office Sought: President,” Schmitt’s campaign told KCTV5 Thursday: “It was a staffing clerical error that has been corrected.”

Schmitt is running for U.S. Senate against Democrat Trudy Busch Valentine for the open U.S. Senate seat in Missouri.
