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.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
