In this Sept. 24, 2008 file image released by NBC, opera singer Neal E. Boyd, center, is flanked by, from left: judges Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne, host Jerry Springer and judge David Hasselhoff after winning the NBC talent competition, "America's Got Talent," in Studio City, Calif. The Southeast Missourian reports that Boyd, of Sikeston, Mo., will seek election as a Republican in the newly drawn 149th Missouri House District. Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder made the announcement Saturday at a Cape Girardeau County Lincoln Day event. Boyd is the first GOP candidate to announce his intention to seek that seat. Democratic state Rep. Steve Hodges also plans to run. (AP Photo/NBC, Chris Haston, file) less
