Today is primary day in the state of Missouri. It marks the end of many campaigns in a year that has seen an unusually large number of interparty battles. Maybe none have been as fierce as the race for the vacant seat in the 7th US Congressional District. The former seatholder, Roy Blunt, will be attempting today to secure the Republican nomination for the open US Senate seat. Meanwhile, eight men will be on the ballot to replace Blunt as the Republican nominee in November. The Fuse Joplin has an excellent write-up on how the leading candidates spent election eve.

The winner of the Republican primary will face either Tim Davis or Scott Eckersley from the Democratic party and Kevin Craig of the Libertarian party.
I know that some are very passionate about their favorites, as can be seen by comments on this blog and others. The important thing, however, is that we exercise our right to vote. Make sure to take time today to get out and make your opinion heard. The polls will open at 6 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m.
