ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The woman who lost the St. Louis mayor's race by 888 votes last time around, says she is thinking about making another run at the office.

St. Louis treasurer Tishaura Jones tells KMOX she wouldn't be human if she didn't feel the lure of trying to win an office she so narrowly lost.

Jones says the different dynamics of this race would give her a higher chance of winning, since there are now two white candidates running, not just one, as when Lyda Krewson won.
