House 76

In the quest to replace Chris Carter in House 76, Josh Peters has prevailed.  See a bio here.

 

After a contentious committee meeting which featured some shoving, it’s said that Sen. Jamilah Nasheed slyly engaged in an unofficial filibuster while she waited for committeewoman Pam Boyd to return – with her weighted votes.  That put Peters (who had the support of Congressman Lacy Clay) over the top by one vote 115-114 to snag the Democratic nomination.
