JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri’s new attorney general will officially take office in a few weeks, after Eric Schmitt was elected as the state’s newest U.S. Senator in November.
Gov. Mike Parson didn’t have to go far to find Missouri’s new top prosecutor. Andrew Bailey is currently serving as the governor’s general counsel until he’s sworn in next month as attorney general. Bailey talked about his priorities and his plan to stay in that role for the foreseeable future.
“I am myopically focused on being the attorney general for the State of Missouri,” he said. “The governor knows I have a passion for public service and where my heart is on that.”
