Former state Public Safety director and Highway Patrol officer Charles R. Jackson wants to be Missouri's next lieutenant governor.
But, to win that job, he'll have to get write-in votes throughout the state.
Jackson, 60, Jefferson City, filed Wednesday with Secretary of State Robin Carnahan's office as an official write-in candidate.
He joins Leonard Steinman, Jefferson City, as an official write-in candidate. Steinman is running for governor.
Nearly a year ago, Jackson - who is not the Charles Jackson who served on Jefferson City's Council and worked at Lincoln University - began gathering signatures to be an independent candidate for lieutenant governor, but never collected the required 10,000 names.
