Ballwin native Ann Wagner took the oath of office in the United States House of Representatives Thursday, as the 113th session of Congress was seated. Wagner, the new representative for Missouri's Second District, succeeds Representative Todd Akin, and along with William "Lacy" Clay in the First District, absorbs the former Third District represented until Thursday by Russ Carnahan. Creve Coeur, which had been entirely in the First Congressional District, now gets representation from two members of the House. Wagner, the former co-chair of the Republican National Committee and an Ambassador to Luxembourg, defeated Democrat Glenn Koenen in November.

Representative-Elect Ann Wagner answered more Patch user questions and talked about the work being done to prepare as she's sworn into office next month
Visitors to 14551 Manchester Rd., Ballwin, MO 63011 will notice the level of activity there is not up to the level it was just a few weeks ago. In fact, the walls in the campaign office of now Congresswoman-Elect Ann Wagner are now barren, save for the maps she carried around during campaign appearances to explain the boundaries of Missouri's new Second Congressional district. But while the campaign apparatus will wind down as soon as this week, Team Wagner is still plenty busy. As soon as the Ballwin Republican's victory over Democrat Glenn Koenen was assured November 6, another campaign began, this time for a leadership position. She was voted by her freshman colleagues to be their voice with GOP house leaders. Next up was getting a …

The next U.S. Representative for Missouri's 2nd District, Ann Wagner answered Patch users' questions in a Thursday afternoon interview
The tweet came down Thursday from House Majority Leader U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va): "The House will not adjourn the 112th Congress until a credible solution to the fiscal cliff has been announced." As negotiations to avert deep automatic spending cuts and tax increases beginning January 1, House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama met at the White House Thursday. Representative-Elect Ann Wagner, meanwhile, is one of 70 incoming freshman in the 113th session, sitting interested, waiting in the wings. The Ballwin Republican sat down with Patch Thursday afternoon in her former campaign headquarters to answer questions about the fiscal cliff, and to answer questions posed by Patch users.

What would you like to know about what she's been doing since election day, or what her plans are once she's seated? What does she think about the looming "Fiscal Cliff" and other matters.

The Oakville Democrat says he "will not quietly disappear into the fog," after loss to Ann Wagner.
The following statement was distributed via email Wednesday morning from the Glenn Koenen campaign for Congress: I want to thank all of you for the help you gave me and support you gave my campaign. You were inspirational and helped keep me committed to the fight. The election result in the 2nd Congressional District did not come out the way that I – and you – wanted. The mostly official tally shows Ann Wagner with 235,607 votes to my 145,257, giving her a 23% margin of victory. The good news is that my cost per vote was about 36¢ to her $12.00. (Alas, the winner in the cost effective category doesn’t get a job in Washington.) Today we need to congratulate Governor Nixon, Senator McCaskill, our new Secretary of State, our returning …

The Oakville resident faces an uphill challenge in his bid to succeed Rep. Todd Akin in Washington.
In less than two weeks, voters in Missouri's new 2nd Congressional district, which spans parts of St. Louis and St. Charles Counties. While the frontrunner, Republican Ann Wagner is already in the "closing argument" phase of her campaign, Democrat Glenn Koenen is still trying to make first impressions. Koenen, the longtime Executive Director of the Circle of Concern Food Pantry, admits he doesn't have the name recognition and financial backing that Wagner, a former Ambassador and RNC Co-Chair, does. He also hasn't been helped by the Democratic Party's decision to stay on the sidelines, or the recount following his narrow win in the August primary against Harold Whitfied which not only cost him time on the campaign trail, but also money …
