Political career

Treasurer of Missouri (2008-Present)

Zweifel was elected as Missouri's 45th state treasurer on November 4, 2008 and sworn in on January 12, 2009.

Missouri State Representative (2002-2008)

Zweifel was first elected to represent District 78 in the Missouri House of Representatives in 2002. He was subsequently re-elected in 2004 and 2006.



Zweifel, who is unable to seek a third term as state treasurer due to term limits, had been mentioned as a possible candidate for governor in 2016. On April 8, 2013, Zweifel's campaign manager Mike Pridemore said that he would not run for governor in order to be able to spend time with his daughters and avoid the possibility of a divisive party primary.[3]
