Roy Blunt casts ballot in Springfield, Mo.

Jefferson City, Mo. – Republican U.S. Senate nominee Roy Blunt is awaiting the vote in his hometown of Springfield.

He and his wife Abby arrived at Glenstone Baptist Church around 11 a.m. to cast their ballots, with their young son Charlie in tow.

Blunt spent the day before flying around Missouri, making ten campaign stops before returning home to Springfield late last night.

Campaign Chair Ann Wagner says Blunt appeared at more than 930 events during the entire length of his campaign, and will spend the evening with family and friends, "eagerly awaiting the only poll that counts."

Blunt's watch party is being held at the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield. He's hoping to defeat Democratic nominee Robin Carnahan. The winner will succeed retiring U.S. Senator Kit Bond (R).
