Representative-Elect Ann Wagner answered more Patch user questions and talked about the work being done to prepare as she's sworn into office next month
Visitors to 14551 Manchester Rd., Ballwin, MO 63011 will notice the level of activity there is not up to the level it was just a few weeks ago. In fact, the walls in the campaign office of now Congresswoman-Elect Ann Wagner are now barren, save for the maps she carried around during campaign appearances to explain the boundaries of Missouri's new Second Congressional district. But while the campaign apparatus will wind down as soon as this week, Team Wagner is still plenty busy. As soon as the Ballwin Republican's victory over Democrat Glenn Koenen was assured November 6, another campaign began, this time for a leadership position. She was voted by her freshman colleagues to be their voice with GOP house leaders. Next up was getting a …

The next U.S. Representative for Missouri's 2nd District, Ann Wagner answered Patch users' questions in a Thursday afternoon interview
The tweet came down Thursday from House Majority Leader U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va): "The House will not adjourn the 112th Congress until a credible solution to the fiscal cliff has been announced." As negotiations to avert deep automatic spending cuts and tax increases beginning January 1, House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama met at the White House Thursday. Representative-Elect Ann Wagner, meanwhile, is one of 70 incoming freshman in the 113th session, sitting interested, waiting in the wings. The Ballwin Republican sat down with Patch Thursday afternoon in her former campaign headquarters to answer questions about the fiscal cliff, and to answer questions posed by Patch users. Fiscal Cliff Wagner said she's …

Patch is speaking with the former U.S. Ambassador-turned-U.S. Representative-Elect Thursday afternoon.
In a few weeks, Ann Wagner will be sworn in as the next U.S. Representative for Missouri's 2nd district, following her November victory over Democrat Glenn Koenen. Before she goes to Washington, D.C., she's sitting down with Patch Thursday afternoon. We have a good idea of where to start with questions, but we'd like your input. What would you like to know about what she's been doing since election day, or what her plans are once she's seated? What does she think about the looming "Fiscal Cliff" and other matters. Give us your questions in the comment section and we'll try to get them answered.

The Oakville Democrat says he "will not quietly disappear into the fog," after loss to Ann Wagner.
The following statement was distributed via email Wednesday morning from the Glenn Koenen campaign for Congress: I want to thank all of you for the help you gave me and support you gave my campaign. You were inspirational and helped keep me committed to the fight. The election result in the 2nd Congressional District did not come out the way that I – and you – wanted. The mostly official tally shows Ann Wagner with 235,607 votes to my 145,257, giving her a 23% margin of victory. The good news is that my cost per vote was about 36¢ to her $12.00. (Alas, the winner in the cost effective category doesn’t get a job in Washington.) Today we need to congratulate Governor Nixon, Senator McCaskill, our new Secretary of State, our returning …

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is scheduled to visit a Clayton hotel Tuesday as part of a fundraiser for U.S. congressional candidate Ann Wagner. The private breakfast event runs from 8 to 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Sheraton Clayton Plaza Hotel St. Louis. On Monday, a group of people organized by advocacy group Progress Missouri held a protest against Christie in downtown Clayton. One photo from the event, posted by a Twitter user with the handle @ssnich, shows people holding signs with statements such as, "Stop the same old politics". ABC News reported being kicked out of another Clayton hotel amid tight security surrounding Christie's anticipated arrival. Christie will not hold any media events during his time Monday and Tuesday in St. Louis…

Decisions about which Missourians will seek office depend in part on how a redistricting battle plays out.
Patch is pleased to partner with Brian R. Hook, editor and investigative reporter for Missouri Watchdog, a news website dedicated to investigative journalism about local, state and federal government across Missouri. We've invited Hook to contribute a weekly column that describes what he's watching and why it's important for Missouri taxpayers. Following politics lately in the St. Louis region is similar to watching children play musical chairs. When the music stops, who will be left without a chair? The latest round in this political shuffle involves Ann Wagner, former ambassador and co-chair of the Republican National Committee. Wagner announced Tuesday that she has formed an exploratory committee, a possible first step in a campaign for…
