Governor Jay Nixon and others battle perception that Mitt Romney could give Republicans a lift in Missouri on election day.
One day after most of the statewide Republican Party ticket made its way to St. Louis County with a rally in Valley Park, Democrats, led by Governor Jay Nixon, gathered outside a Town and Country-area labor hall to urge on volunteers in the closing days of the campaign. Nixon, Lieutenant Governor candidate Susan Montee, State Treasurer Clint Zweifel, Attorney General Chris Koster and Secretary of State candidate Jason Kander were at the The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union Hall in unincorporated St. Louis County just north of Manchester Road after many of them had been at a Webster Groves rally featuring former U.S. Representative Dick Gephardt.

The latest Blue Arch survey of Democratic activists asked about the party's slate of candidates for statewide office November 6.
Democrats are overwhelmingly confident that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon will be re-elected to a second term in Jefferson City.

When asked "Which statewide candidate are you most confident will win in November," 81 percent answered Jay Nixon, who is running against St. Louis area businessman Dave Spence, a political newcomer. Chris Koster received 14 point 3 percent and 4.8 percent answered Clint Zweifel. Why? Democrats said it is because Nixon is …

The latest "Blue Arch" survey of Missouri Democrats focuses on the party's statewide candidates.
With just more than 40 days left until the November election, Missouri Democrats are confident in Governor Jay Nixon's chances for re-election but by a wide margin are worried about former State Auditor Susan Montee as she tries to unseat Republican incumbent Peter Kinder from the Lieutenant Governor's office. Those were the main findings of the most recent survey of Democrats as part of the Patch Blue Arch project, which asks current and former lawmakers, activists, voters and other party "influencers" in the weeks and months leading up to November's election. The non-scientific survey was conducted September 17-21 and received 29 responses. When asked "Which statewide candidate are you most confident will win in November," 69 percent …

The Wagner campaign responds to speculation from Politico that she may switch races.
Ann Wagner wowed political observers with her latest fundraising quarter. So much so, in fact, that at least one politico speculated that she might be eyeing another contest. Wagner, a Ballwin Republican who previously served as Missouri Republican Party chairwoman and ambassador to Luxemburg, raised $532,093.07 in the 3rd quarter for her 2nd Congressional District bid. That was far more than what the other GOP contender for the seat, Republican attorney Ed Martin, brought in during the fundraising quarter. “I am honored to have earned the trust and support of so many citizens across the 2nd District,” said Wagner in a statement. “I am energized by the strength and momentum of our campaign. And I intend to answer the call of the people to …
