A long-time St. Louis County lawmaker is leaving office this year because her Senate district was moved to the Kansas City area. Republican Jane Cunningham of Chesterfield has spent eight years in the Missouri House and four in the Senate, making a name for herself as an outspoken social conservative.
During her last visit to the Capitol as an elected official last week, she sat down with St. Louis Public Radio’s Marshall Griffin to talk about her record in office and where she goes from here.
Republican Rep. Todd Akin says Missouri TV viewers should expect to see his U.S. Senate ads all the way until Election Day.
One of the biggest questions surrounding Akin's campaign has been whether he will be able to raise enough money to spread his message. Some big-dollar donors dropped their support because of his remarks last month about rape and abortion.
