President Donald Trump endorsed current Governor Mike Parson in a tweet Tuesday night.
In the tweet, Trump said Parson is "very popular, strong and knows what he is doing - he gets it!"
Parson became governor last year when former Governor Eric Greitens resigned from office amid controversy.
According to the Missouri Ethics Commission, the following people have active committees for the 2020 Governor's race: Eric Morrison, Edward Thurman and State Auditor Nicole Galloway, who are Democrats, and Parson and Greitens, who are Republicans.
The gubernatorial election is November 3, 2020.
