ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former Republican state lawmaker says she is giving “serious consideration” to entering the increasingly crowded race for St. Louis County executive.

The county’s current leader, Democrat Charlie Dooley, faces an August primary challenge from County Councilman Steve Stenger.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/1fEWaAx ) reports that onetime state representative and senator Jane Cunningham is weighing a request by leaders of the county’s Republican Party to challenge the Democratic primary winner in the November general election.

She would first have to defeat Green Park Alderman Tony Pousosa and Ellisville City Councilman Matt Pirrello. Both filed their candidacies last week.

Cunningham left the Legislature following a 2012 redistricting. She currently serves on the elected board for the Monarch fire district in Chesterfield.
