Peter D. Kinder is an American politician and member of the Republican Party from the U.S. state of Missouri. He was elected Lieutenant Governor of Missouri in 2004 as Matt Blunt was elected governor. Kinder was re-elected in 2008 at the same time Democrat Jay Nixon was elected governor. Kinder was the only Republican in Missouri to win statewide office in 2008, as all other Republicans running for each of the other statewide offices suffered defeat. Despite the overwhelmingly poor election year for Republicans, and his winning by only about 1.5% of the votes cast, Kinder carried 102 of Missouri's 114 counties. In 2012, once again the only Republican to win statewide, Kinder was re-elected as the first lieutenant governor to be elected to a third term in Missouri since 1940.
