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.
It must be difficult for CA to find enough illegals to petal a bi-cycle to generate enough electricity to power their election site.
“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.
Is it an open primary and if so, what are the thresholds? 50% to avoid runoff, etc.? thanks
I did not say it was wrong, I said confusing.
You seem to have three great candidates.
May MO send the best one out to clobber McCaskill.
Too many Missourians recall Steelman is a homewrecker
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”.
So Mcaskill and the top GOP vote getter go head to head in Nov? yes?

Yes, the top vote getter in each party is that party’s candidate in November.
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.)
“Lamar is up in 2014. May a credible Tea Party candidate emerge and that WILL CHANGE. We will send Lamar Packing.”
I second that emotion. Sending that effete patrician to the dustbin in 2014 would make my day, month, and year.
You’d think they’d come up with better servers than this...
Until a candidate like Cruz or Mourdock emerges, we are stuck.
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.
