Mid-Missourians’ votes didn’t always agree with state’s
Sunday, August 12, 2012
The statewide races for November’s general election are set. But Mid-Missouri’s voters didn’t always help set them — especially on the Republican side.
In the 10-county region — Cole, Callaway, Boone, Moniteau, Miller, Morgan, Camden, Maries, Osage and Gasconade counties — voters clearly took more GOP ballots than Democratic ones, while the Libertarian and Constitution parties attracted only a relative handful of voters.
In the seven statewide races — U.S. Senate, governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, treasurer and attorney general — Democratic voters in all 10 counties agreed with their statewide counterparts in every county but one. But Mid-Missouri’s Republican voters had much more mixed results.
