Is this an “open” primary? We don’t have them here so I don’t know much about them.

Could the Republican be forced into a runoff, like TX, or is this a "first past the pole" plurality win is the nominee type election?

(Go Steelman!)

Why would a State Election Site Crash? Were they not up to the task of handing the traffic? Or is Rove calling the shots now? LOL.

I don't live in Missouri but this primary interests me because we have two Tea Party allies working for different candidates in this race.

Will the endorsement of Gov. Sarah Palin for Sarah Steelman eclipse the Get Out The Vote effort of FreedomWorks for John Brunner? FreedomWorks did a great job of GOTV for Ted Cruz in Texas. This race should be a good test of the strength of the "Palin Effect".

May the best conservative candidate for the U.S. Senate win!

I really have no dog in this race. Of the three candidates who may win, my first choice is Sarah Steelman, as I think that she would rally the rural vote, but I would have no problem with John Brunner or Todd Akin being a U.S. Senator. All three are second-tier candidates, but all three would be at least a 50/50 bet to unseat the unpopular McCaskill. None are favorites of the establishment types, most of whom are sitting this primary out.

Because it is run by the Government. Try looking at the California site it sucks big time and it’s run by Democrats which makes it suck even worse.

That’s a problem that will have to be worked out in the future. The Tea Party must choose one candidate and get behind one candidate, not multiple candidates. It is confusing to see divided Tea Party support.

50-50! Good grief! If we lose this one we're S.O.L.!

This race should be and hopefully will be an easy pickup. We have a strong field, three good conservatives with establishment ties.

“May the best conservative candidate for the U.S. Senate win!”

I agree. Early on, it looked to me as though Steelman might be the most conservative of the three, but I have seen conflicting opinions from on-the-ground Missourians.

Personally I like to have a choice in the primary, not have a candidate coronated by handful of self-appointed 'leaders' who claim to speak for me.

Here we have a primary between three good conservative candidates - how can you complain?

I understand that in Tennessee, for instance, they have repeatedly nominated moderates, but the conservative candidates need to take some responsibility for rallying the base, and the voters need to take responsibility for making good decisions, both of which have been lacking in that state.

No runoffs. It’s an open primary. Any registered voter can get the ballot of whichever party he chooses. I’m sure some democrats will be “strategically voting”.

It is so true that we have nominated moderates here in Tn.
The only response I can tell you that, given a credible candidate, like Mourdock or Cruz and that could change.
Lamar is up in 2014. May a credible Tea Party candidate emerge and that WILL CHANGE. We will send Lamar Packing.

I had hopes for Ron Ramsey, but it didn’t work out. Maybe Lamar! will do us all a favor and retire. (He probably HAS retired, in his mind - on the taxpayer dole in D.C.)

I second that emotion. Sending that effete patrician to the dustbin in 2014 would make my day, month, and year.

Yes it’s an open primary but, in the heavy Democrat areas, who wins the primary wins the general election. So, there is very little cross over vote.

Being from the BigMO, McCaskill is only popular in STL and KC. Unfortunately, those regions are bigTimeLib lovers.

However, other than those locations, the rest of MO wants the lying Pelosi-JR gone.

I think Brunner will take it. Steelman, for many here, is too much of the RINO. Anyhow, whomever the rep may be, I feel confident that the evilWitch-ofMO will be gone this time. Just my thoughts from the Ozarks.

I said earlier today that this would be a close race, possibly with all three ending up in the 25-35% range. I voted for Todd Akin, so that’s who I’m pulling for. But any of the three can beat ObamaClaire McCaskill in November.
