When all is said and done, strippers made absolutely no difference in the Seventh District Congressional race and that was the situation right from the start. Was it an interesting story? Absolutely. It added some spark to a race that lacked any. The real vote took place in August when Billy Long defeated Jack Goodman and Gary Nodler. Scott Eckersley brought his record of fighting for open government into an arena where most of the people favored the man he fought, former Gov. Matt Blunt.

SPRINGFIELD --  Governor Jay Nixon easily won Tuesday's primary; he held his watch party in Springfield with the Greene County Democrats. Hundreds of supports packed into the University Plaza Hotel where the governor took the stage for about 20 minutes in what seemed more like a campaign rally than a watch party.    Nixon told supporters he has strong a record of reaching across the aisle to work with republicans. He highlighted what he called his bi-partisan efforts to balance the state budget without raising taxes and his work to revive the economy.

Clever, Mo. --  Christian County voters had to wait a long time Tuesday night to see their results come in; that was just one issue.  Some voters showed up at their polling place only to find out there weren't enough ballots for everyone. "I'm so sorry that it happened, and it won't happen again.  I'm just sorry for the inconvenience," said Christian County Clerk Kay Brown. Brown said some of the things that went wrong Election Day were things her office could not have known about beforehand.  But Brown said one problem, at a polling place in Clever, could have been prevented.  Voters in the 138th district showed up to find their precinct was out of ballots.
