ST. LOUIS, MO - A high-profile family feud is brewing in Cape Girardeau County, where two cousins are running against each other in the election for presiding commissioner.

Victor Farrow and his cousin Tom Farrow both filed to run in the election yesterday, according to the Southeast Missourian newspaper in Cape Girardeau.

Victor Farrow says he decided to run when he saw that his cousin had filed as a Republican early in the day.

Farrow says he's good friends with his cousin, but wanted a Democrat to fill the seat for commissioner.
