State Rep. Stacey Newman</strong></em></p><p>Mo. State Rep. Stacey Newman has won the special Democratic primary for the&nbsp;87<sup>th</sup>&nbsp;District in St. Louis County, according to results posted on the<a href="http://www.sos.mo.gov/elections/2012SpecialPrimary/">&nbsp;Missouri Secretary of State website</a>. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Tue, 25 Sep 2012 02:38:48 +0000 Tim Lloyd 4688 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Mo. State Rep. Stacey Newman Wins Democratic Primary Redo Voters in 87th District face Democratic deja vu http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/voters-87th-district-face-democratic-deja-vu <p><strong>Updated at 1:15 pm to reflect that the maps were drawn by a panel of judges, not the General Assembly.</strong></p><p>In the first election after <a href="https://www.stlbeacon.org/#!/content/14595/judges_unveil_new_boundary_lines_for_missouri_house_and_senate">redistricting</a>, it’s not uncommon for former colleagues from the same party to square off for a seat in the Missouri General Assembly.</p><p>So the August primary between Democrats Susan Carlson and Stacey Newman for the new 87th District in St. Louis County was nothing unusual - until the<a href="http://electionresults.stlouisco.com/el120807/el45.htmL"> unofficial results</a> showed a one-vote margin of victory for Newman. The plot thickened when <a href="http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/st-louis-county-finds-ballot-irregularities-razor-thin-state-house-race">ballot irregularities</a> made it impossible to conduct a recount.</p><p>By now, the two women planned to be helping out other candidates with general election opponents. But instead,&nbsp;they’re back out on the campaign trail for themselves.</p><p> Fri, 21 Sep 2012 11:25:44 +0000 Rachel Lippmann 4630 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Voters in 87th District face Democratic deja vu St. Louis County finds ballot irregularities in razor-thin state House race http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/st-louis-county-finds-ballot-irregularities-razor-thin-state-house-race <p><strong><em>Updated 3:25 p.m. </em></strong><em>with reaction from Stacey Newman.</em></p><p><em><strong>Updated 3:10 p.m.</strong> to clarify that the two precincts were, indeed, in two separate Missouri House districts, confirming the importance to the issue to the race between Stacey Newman and Susan Carlson.</em></p><p><em>Updated with quotes from Rita Heard Days</em>.</p> Tue, 14 Aug 2012 18:12:37 +0000 Rachel Lippmann 4318 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org St. Louis County finds ballot irregularities in razor-thin state House race
