But in the Democratic mayoral primary, former Alderman Jimmie Matthews sometimes seems the odd man out. Unlike his two opponents -- incumbent Mayor Francis Slay and Board of Alderman President Lewis Reed -- he hasn't solicited any campaign donations, and he hasn't spent much money on the race either. That's led some to speculate that he isn't a serious candidate, that he's only in the race to take votes from Reed.</span></p> Fri, 01 Mar 2013 11:00:00 +0000 Chris McDaniel 9768 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Mayoral Candidate Matthews On His Opponents, Stalking Horse Allegations, And His Plans Matthews, Reed, Slay Square Off In St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/matthews-reed-slay-square-st-louis-mayoral-primary-forum-0 <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">At Monday's forum, the three Democratic candidates made their case for why they should be St. Louis' next mayor.&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Incumbent mayor Francis Slay is seeking an unprecedented fourth four-year term, while the other two candidates argued it was time for someone else to take the reins.</span></p> Mon, 11 Feb 2013 23:49:37 +0000 Chris McDaniel 9200 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Matthews, Reed, Slay Square Off In St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum Live Special Event: St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/live-special-event-st-louis-mayoral-primary-forum <p><em>Updated 12:45 p.m. following forum - more to come.</em></p><p>Today, "St. Louis on the Air" hosted&nbsp;<a href="http://www.news.stlpublicradio.org/post/join-us-monday-st-louis-air-host-st-louis-mayoral-primary-forum">its St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum</a>.</p><p><em>(For a full report of the event, see <a href="http://www.news.stlpublicradio.org/post/matthews-reed-slay-square-st-louis-mayoral-primary-forum-0">our Chris McDaniel's story here</a>)</em></p> Mon, 11 Feb 2013 15:24:34 +0000 Kelsey Proud, Sean Sandefur, Alex Heuer, Don Marsh & Mary Edwards 9135 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Live Special Event: St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum Today: St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/today-st-louis-mayoral-primary-forum <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The three candidates for the Democratic nomination for St. Louis mayor will take part in a one-hour town hall forum today.&nbsp;</span></p><p>St. Louis Public Radio will air the forum, which is the second gathering of the candidates ahead of the March 5th primary election.</p><p>In liberal territory like St. Louis, the winner of the Democratic primary in March immediately becomes the presumptive favorite to win the general election on April 2<sup>nd</sup>.</p> Mon, 11 Feb 2013 12:42:22 +0000 Adam Allington 9172 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Today: St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum Join Us On Monday: 'St. Louis on the Air' To Host St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/join-us-monday-st-louis-air-host-st-louis-mayoral-primary-forum <p>Today on "St. Louis on the Air," we announced that we'll be hosting the St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum. &nbsp;Here are some of the details:</p> Wed, 06 Feb 2013 17:55:50 +0000 St. Louis Public Radio 9041 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Join Us On Monday: 'St. Louis on the Air' To Host St. Louis Mayoral Primary Forum Infographic: How Are The Mayoral Candidates Spending Their Money? http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/infographic-how-are-mayoral-candidates-spending-their-money <p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">Last week, St. Louis Public Radio took a look at <a href="http://www.news.stlpublicradio.org/post/reed-faces-steep-fundraising-disadvantage-mayoral-race" target="_blank">how much money</a>&nbsp;</span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">the mayoral candidates have amassed, and where that money is coming from.
