A Few Filings Observations

No rural Dem in LG primary is very very good news for Susan Montee.  Easily call her the favorite now.

 

Amazing passes: Rep. Paul LeVota takes over Senate 11 without a primary.  No Dem challenge to Floor Leader Tom Dempsey in somewhat competitive Senate 23, and Sen. Eric Schmitt also gets clean path to re-election.

 

Rep. Cole McNary escapes a primary for Treasurer.  One Republican joked that between his lackluster fundraising, and endorsement from moderate Jack Danforth, he was doing everything he could to get a primary.
