Will Claire McCaskill run for Missouri-GOV?

We’re about to find out, apparently.  Also, whether Claire McCaskill will be resigning from the Senate in order to run for Governor: she does not strictly have to, mind you. And, honestly, you know that my reflexive response on this would be Dang straight McCaskill should resign, and Jay Nixon should schedule a special election on the spot. Which Jay Nixon would not: even assuming that McCaskill resigned Jay Nixon would be only be obligated to schedule an election in 2016 for a two-year term.

Although it’d be funny if the Missouri state legislature suddenly decided to require both a resign-to-run law, and a special-election one.  I think that they have enough to overturn a veto…
