One of Missouri's most prominent politicians is getting out of the business. Karyn Dest has more from Jefferson City.

Politics has gotten too dirty for Missouri's lieutenant governor, Roger Wilson. Citing a rise in attack politics, he announced he will not seek reelection to the state's number two post.

But House GOP leader Delbert Scott says he disagrees with Wilson's assessment that politics have gone bad.

The race to fill Wilson's position next year is already beginning. State Senator Joe Maxwell has dumped his bid for Treasurer and is now running for lieutenant governor.

Wilson has served six years as Missouri's lieutenant governor. In Jefferson City, I'm Karyn Dest.
