Peter Kinder Biography »
Peter D. Kinder (born May 12, 1954 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri) is an American politician from the U.S. state of Missouri. Kinder is a member of the Republican Party. He was elected Lieutenant Governor of Missouri in 2004 as Matt Blunt was elected Governor. Kinder was reelected in 2008 at the same time Jay Nixon was elected Governor. Kinder was the only Republican in Missouri to win statewide office in 2008, as all other Republicans running for each of the other statewide offices suffered defeat. Despite the overwhelmingly poor election year for Republicans, Kinder carried 102 of Missouri's 114 counties. He was considered the front runner in the 2012 Republican gubernatorial primary, but instead decided to run for re-election as Lt. Governor after St. Louis businessman and multimillionaire Dave Spence unexpectedly declared to run for Governor and pledged to put much of his own money into the race.
