Tuesday, voters will decide the Democratic challenger in the hotly contested Missouri 1st Congressional District race.
For weeks, Reps. William Lacy Clay and Russ Carnahan have been trading barbs in ads and interviews for the chance to continue serving St. Louis City and County residents.
While the last financial reports revealed Carnahan had raised more and spent more than the 1st District incumbent, Clay struck first in television ads.
Monday, KSDK News reported that Clay is edging Carnahan out, according to poll results from Survey USA. According to the poll, Clay is leading Carahan 56-35 percent, while challenger Candice Britton received two percent. In addition, Carnahan leads white voters, three-to-one, while Clay leads black voters, seven-to-one.
Area Democrats seem to agree with the poll results in Patch’s latest blue arch survey. More than 55 percent believed Clay would win compared to Carnahan’s 35 percent.
By the end of the day, voters will know who will face the Republican challenger in the Nov. 6 general election.
