Jason Jarvis announced late Wednesday that he plans to run for the Dist. 22 Missouri Senate seat in 2014.
Jarvis, of Dittmer, ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for Jefferson County sheriff in August.
E.J. Fleischmann, Jarvis' spokesperson, said Jarvis could not be reached because he is currently serving in Iraq.
Here is more on Jarvis' background from his run for the Republican nomination for sheriff.
Sen. Ryan McKenna (D-Crystal City) currently occupies the Dist. 22 seat. He was elected in 2006.
