(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A St. Joseph physician is now in the running for Missouri State Senator.

Supporters of Dr. Robert Stuber filled East Hills Library Wednesday night.

They listened to Dr. Stuber explain why he should become the next State Senator from the 34th District.

Stuber is running against Republican Rob Schaaf, who currently holds the seat.

Stuber says he doesn't agree with the way things are currently done.

"I really don't care for the gentleman who is the current Senator for the 34th District, I don't agree with any of his policies, any of his stances, and that's really why I'm running," said Stuber.

Stuber decided to run for State Senator just a few weeks ago as a Democrat. He said his campaign is well underway.
