Here were some nail-biters and locks in Missouri’s general election

Missouri had some close calls in Tuesday’s general election.

About 52% of Missouri voters have said thanks, but no thanks to restricting the Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, State Auditor and Attorney General to two terms.

Amendment 3 has prevailed in Missouri with about 51% of Missouri voters favoring the measure to overturn a redistricting plan they endorsed in 2018.

Missouri Senate Majority Floor Leader Caleb Rowden of Columbia narrowly came out with the victory by taking home 52% of the votes against Democrat Judy Baker.

In the House District 135 race, prominent Republican Representative Steve Helms of Springfield lost by 34 votes to Democrat Betsy Fogle. The race is within the margin that gives Helms the chance to request a recount.

Republican Rick Roeber of Lee’s Summit won by 345 votes in the House District 34 race against Democrat Chris Hager.

But Missouri voters rode the red wave in the sate as well. President Trump carried the Show-Me State for the second straight time. Plus, Republicans held onto their seats for attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer and lieutenant governor and re-elected Gov. Mike Parson.
