A Missouri Republican, Talent lost his seat in 2006's blue wave to a then little-known state auditor named Claire McCaskill.

Despite an extended break from public service, he has an impressive curriculum vitae. 

Talent served on the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission making him an expert on the Middle East, Asia, national security, and trade.

At the same time, his political fortunes have changed since 2016. When Talent was last in the running, he enjoyed the support of incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. 

Priebus left the administration 18 months ago.
