Description A former federal prosecutor currently serving as a top attorney on the congressional panel probing the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is being urged to run for Missouri’s U.S. Senate seat as an independent.

On Monday, a committee headed by former U.S. Sen. Jack Danforth launched a website to encourage John F. Wood to run as an alternative choice for the seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt.

The next step is for the group to file with the Federal Election Commission in order to begin raising money. As a candidate not affiliated with a party, Wood also would have to collect signatures to get on the November ballot.

Danforth is pushing for an independent candidate in order to “provide Missouri voters a principled, traditional conservative choice for the United States Senate this year.”
