Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon has filed paperwork with the Missouri Ethics Commission to run for governor against Matt Blunt in 2008. According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, he filed a document that amends details of his fundraising committee, Friends of Nixon.

This isn't much of a surprise: Nixon and Blunt have already grappled over a few issues. Nixon said Blunt's 65% plan for funding schools "made no sense." Nixon opposed Blunt in preventing a prisoner from getting an abortion. And Nixon stopped Blunt from giving up rights to the Boonville Bridge, which would have endangered the Katy Trail in favor of a tasty contract with Union Pacific.

The Mailbox thinks that, though Nixon filed way too early, this will be a really good race. And the Mailbox has three words for why Nixon will win: No Call list. GOP or Dem; anyone who thinks of something like that gets the Mailbox's vote.
