Emerson sets departure date: 11:59 p.m. on January 22

U.S. Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Cape Girardeau, will no longer represent Missouri’s 8th District as of 11:59 p.m. next Tuesday.

Emerson said in a telephone interview Friday that her timing is aimed at encouraging Gov. Jay Nixon to call a special election on April 2, a regular election date.

By law, the governor’s announcement setting a special election must be at least 10 Tuesdays before the date, she said. “We’re giving him 11.”

She said she is sending a letter to the governor stipulating the exact day and time that she is stepping down.
