Missouri Senator Roy Blunt says the race for the Republican presidential nomination could still be in play in March when Missouri holds its caucus. But before that, Missouri will hold a meaningless presidential primary on Feb. 7.
Blunt, a Republican, says at a time when the state is trying to save money, a primary that has no binding impact should have been eliminated.
"But we're going to have it," Blunt said. "And that February primary may give some guidance to people going to the March caucuses."
