ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Former State Senator Scott Sifton is ending his pursuit of Missouri’s soon to be open US Senate seat and is endorsing Trudy Busch Valentine.

Valentine is the daughter of the late August “Gussie” Busch, Jr., both the longtime head of Anheuser-Busch and owner of the Cardinals for several decades.

Valentine officially launched her campaign Monday. Many polls have shown the former marine Lucas Kunce leading the Democratic primary. Nine other Democrats and at least six Republicans are running to replace retiring GOP Senator Roy Blunt.
