Crowell not running for office after he leaves Senate

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Republican Senator Jason Crowell says he is not going to run for elected office after his current term ends in the Missouri Senate.

Crowell will be forced out of office due to term limits next year. For the time being, he says he will focus on his personal life.

"I’m getting married October 15 and Kasey and I are going to start our life together," Crowell says. "And that life together does not include any kind of elected office. I’ve been very, very honored to serve Southeast Missouri in both the Missouri House and the Missouri Senate. But what I want to do next is to be the best husband that I possibly can be and God willing a father and focus on raising a family."

Crowell has served in the Missouri Senate since first winning election in 2004, representing Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Madison, Mississippi, Perry and Scott Counties.

He was elected to the Missouri House of Representative in 2000 and 2002.
