While he's leaving the spotlight, Maxwell plans to keep a hand in politics. He wants to help rebuild the Missouri Democratic Party so that people know "who we are and what we stand for."Sorry for the late update as I have been busy at my dad's office today.
He says "titles mean a lot less" to him than they used to, now that his wife's health problems have changed his priorities. But he doesn't rule out another race for public office if family concerns abate.
"It would still be my goal to someday be a governor of Missouri," Maxwell says.

Don't count Joe Maxwell Out yet
Lt. Gov. Maxwell is bowing out - but don't count him out. This is the type of guy that can win in a red state as a centrist Democrat.
