With Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon headed for the governor's mansion, Republicans have a chance to take over his old job. Mike Gibbons, the current state Senate president pro tem, is leading narrowly, 52-48, with 23 percent of precincts in.
That's still early, but his opponent, Chris Koster, drew some disfavor among Democrats. He was a party switcher, first of all, and some people thought he recruited an extra challenger to run in the primary to keep his opponent's vote total down.
Meanwhile, it's interesting to see that Sam Page is losing in the lieutenant governor's race against the incumbent, Peter Kinder. Page is running 12 points behind Nixon. It's surprising to me that there's that much ticket-splitting between governor and lieutenant governor.
