Missouri Treasurer Eric Schmitt has been appointed as Missouri’s Attorney General effective in January 2019.

Schmitt joined the show to discuss his new position and what he hopes to bring to the state. We’ve had many moving parts in Missouri's legislature this year.

With Governor Parson taking Greitens’ place, Josh Hawley moving taking Senator Claire McCaskill’s seat and now Eric Schmitt taking Josh Hawley’s place, we are left wondering who will move in to the Missouri Treasurer spot. “We’re going to make sure the transition to the Treasurer’s office is smooth,” Schmitt said.

Schmitt said he is excited to see what Hawley will do in representing Missouri in the Senate. “It was really an honor to work side-by- side with Josh to help him get elected,” he said.
