A previous contender for Missouri's 7th Congressional seat is running again—this time for a different party. 

Republic resident Jim Evans ran as a Democrat against Republican Congressman Billy Long in 2012 and 2014.


But this year he’s running as a Republican.  Evans officially registered as a candidate last week in Jefferson City.  

"I don't even consider it a switch," Evans told KSMU. "I'm an independent-minded, middle of the road person. I've spent most of my life voting Republican."
