Nov 4, 2008

The Missouri Governor race in 2008 was won by DFLer Jeremiah Nixon (pictured) over Republican Kenny Hulshof. It was a party change as previous Governor Matt Blunt was a Republican.

Hulshof's run for Governor left an opening in District 9, where Blaine Luetkemeyer won and kept the seat in the Republican column. Incumbents won re-election in the other eight districts.

Missouri Senator Christopher Bond is up for election in 2010, while Senator Claire McCaskill's term ends in 2012.

At this writing the winner of Missouri's 11 Electoral Votes was not yet decided.
