Election Results

St. Louis – Rep. Kenny Hulshof won the Republican nomination for governor in Tuesday's primary, beating State Treasurer Sarah Steelman 49.2 percent to 44.7 percent. He will run against Democrat Jay Nixon in November.

In the race to replace Nixon as state attorney general, Democrat Chris Koster has claimed victory, and says he'll take on Republican Mike Gibbons in November. However the race was close, with Koster leading Margaret Donnelly 34.3 percent to 34.0 percent. A spokesman for Donnelly's
campaign says she is not conceding and may request a
recount.

Democrat Sam Page and Republican incumbent Peter Kinder won their parties' nominations for lieutenant governor in November.

Voters in the 9th Congressional District who selected Republican ballots picked Blaine Luetkemeyer from a field of five candidates to run for the seat Kenny Hulshof is leaving. Democrats chose Judy Baker from among four candidates.

The Metropolitan Sewer District bond issue passed by a 3-to-1 margin. It allows MSD to sell $275 million in bonds to fix sewer lines in St. Louis city and county to comply with the federal Clean Water Act. MSD officials have said sewer rates will still rise, but not as sharply as they would have had the measure not passed.

In St. Charles County, a $30 million bond issue for a new community fitness and aquatic center passed easily. The proposal needed 57 percent to pass, and 69 percent of voters approved it.

Election results from all contested statewide
and St. Louis-area congressional and legislative races are listed below:
