U.S. Senate

Claire McCaskill's bid for re-election will be closely watched by the entire nation in part because of her close ties to President Obama's 2008 campaign. 

The fiercely-fought GOP primary will likely see U.S. Rep. Todd Akin (R-Wildwood), former State Treasurer Sarah Steelman or Frontenac businessman John Brunner emerge as McCaskill's opponent.

The "Tea Party" movement will also be a factor in the campaign, with one activist's comments about drawing added scrutiny and security for McCaskill. 

In the meantime, dueling .

Congress

Redistricting brought on by the latest Census results has eliminated one of Missouri's congressional districts, to see who will represent the city of St. Louis and areas south, along with portions of St. Louis County stretching to the Maryland Heights border with Creve Coeur.

The primary winner will be an overwhelming favorite against either Robyn Hamlin or Martin Baker in November.

Missouri's new Second district is guaranteed to see someone new elected, with Rep. Akin's decision to run for the Senate. come into the fold to support her, enough so that it helped push Ed Martin to change races.

What about the State primary election candidates?

You will want to keep this page bookmarked as it will grow as candidates load their profiles and we add stories from the campaign. Consider it a "living, breathing document."

The Burrs get my vote for Township Committee. Neil Breitwiser has been asleep at the switch. Letting Jill Schupp run unopposed in 2 straight elections is absolutely inexcusable.
Maria Burr August 04, 2012 at 12:26 AM
Gregg, thanks for putting this together! This is a great resource for Creve Coeur voters!
Maria Burr August 04, 2012 at 12:29 AM

Time to find a Rep. candidate for State Rep in '14!

Burr's are getting my vote.

How about Scott Simon for Rep?
Scott Simon November 02, 2012 at 06:25 PM
flyoverland, when I started complaining to the state's central committee, they asked me, but taking care of a 90 year-old mother is my most important job right now.

Make a special note to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates for the Presidency, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1
