Kirkton Jeanne Kirkton, our October cover girl, is winning in her state House race in Webster Groves, Missouri, just west of St. Louis. She leads Randy Jotte, 54-46, with 78 percent of precincts reporting.

This would be the first time Democrats have won this district since it was created in the mid-1960s. (Prior to that, it was part of a multi-candidate district in St. Louis County.)

In the other race highlighted in that story, Republican Rep. Mark Parkinson is beating challenger Kristy Manning, 54-46, with 43 percent of precincts reporting. That's a district where the precincts vary considerably in terms of partisan leanings, so we'll check in on this race again.
