When I went out to Missouri to write a story about legislative elections recently, I was told Democrats were targeting three House seats in St. Charles County, which has been solidly Republican turf.
Republicans prevailed in two out of the three seats yesterday. State Rep. Mark Parkinson beat Kristy Manning in a race I wrote about in Governing, and Anne Zerr beat Tim Swope in a neighboring district that I visited but did not write about.
The one Democratic victor in the county was Kenny Bierman, a repeat candidate who pulled off the narrowest of wins -- 10,945 votes to Republican Vicki Schneider's 10,870.
