Missouri Democrats nearly sweep statewide offices

Source: STL Post-dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • Missouri incumbents prevailed in their campaigns for statewide office Tuesday, while Democrat Jason Kander appears to have won the wide-open secretary of state’s race after unofficial final results.
Incumbent Attorney General Chris Koster took a strong lead in the race and was declared the winner over Republican rival Ed Martin shortly before 11 p.m. Meanwhile, Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder fought off a challenge from Democrat Susan Montee to secure a rare third term in that office. State treasurer Clint Zweifel, a Democrat, also eked out a win after trailing in the polls much of the night.

With nearly every precinct reporting early today, Kander led Republican Shane Schoeller by about 30,000 votes.

Koster, 48, previously served in the state Senate as a Republican, but he switched parties before running for attorney general four years ago.
