JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri- State politicians were quick to react to today’s resignation of former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens. Attorney General Josh Hawley who had called for Greitens to quit said,”Governor Greitens has done the right thing today.”
Governor Greitens has done the right thing today. I wish incoming Governor Mike Parson well, and stand ready to assist him in his transition. This Office’s work for the people of Missouri goes forward.
