The Jaco Report: Aug. 12, 2012
(KTVI)-On the Jaco Report, what are we left with after the Missouri’s Tuesday primary? An incumbent Democratic senator that Politico.com called the most likely senator to be defeated this Fall. She’s being challenged by a republican nominee who was called by the Washington Post one of the least-electable candidates in the country.
We have an incumbent Democratic governor who often acts like a Republican being challenged by a Republican candidate who said he had a degree in economics that turned out to be a degree in home economics.
We have two congressmen left in metro St. Louis. One, Democrat Lacy Clay, is from a powerful political family and doesn’t face any serious political opposition. The other, Republican Anne Wagner, a former GOP heavyweight and U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg, faces only token opposition.
We have a Lieutenant Governor who survived spending and strip club controversies running for re-election. We have a Democratic Attorney General who used to be a Republican running against a Republican who believes in ObamaCare death panels and was running for Congress before he shifted gears.
We take a look at the state of politics in Missouri.
