Wagner for Senate

Last week Rex Sinquefield hosted a fundraiser for Congresswoman Ann Wagner.  About 100 people were there, and the event is said to have raised about $175K. One attendee says that she’s “all in” for the Senate race.

The state of the Missouri Republican Party means that supporters are bracing for a primary because Wagner – being an elected official – is considered “establishment” by some factions of the MOGOP. Still it’s likely her primary will end up being more nuisance than troublesome. One factor which should buttress her position is that it’s likely Senator Mitch McConnell with his ginormous SuperPAC would like the idea of Wagner in the Senate and would come to her aid in any primary fight.
