Special Elections Bill Receives First-Round Approval In The Mo. House

UPI/Bill Greenblatt

The Missouri House has given first-round approval to legislation that would require special elections to fill vacancies in statewide offices.


If passed, House Bill 110 would only allow the Governor to appoint a temporary placeholder who would not be eligible to run in the special election.  House Speaker Pro-tem Jason Smith (R, Salem), the bill’s sponsor, says it’s not a deliberate swipe at Democratic Governor Jay Nixon.

A St. Louis County lawmaker plans to file legislation that would require background checks on anyone who buys a firearm at a gun show.

State Representative Stacey Newman (D, Richmond Heights) says her proposal would close the so-called “gun show loophole” in Missouri.

“Right now, federal background checks are only done through licensed dealers," Newman said.  "That exempts gun shows where people can purchase unlimited amounts of weapons, including assault weapons.”

Voters in 87th District face Democratic deja vu

Updated at 1:15 pm to reflect that the maps were drawn by a panel of judges, not the General Assembly.

In the first election after redistricting, it’s not uncommon for former colleagues from the same party to square off for a seat in the Missouri General Assembly.

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 unofficial results showed a one-vote margin of victory for Newman. The plot thickened when ballot irregularities made it impossible to conduct a recount.

By now, the two women planned to be helping out other candidates with general election opponents. But instead, they’re back out on the campaign trail for themselves.
