As Gov. Jay Nixon and Sen. Claire McCaskill led a blue resurgence in a red state in 2012, some started mixing mentions of the Missouri governor with the year 2016. St. Louis Post Dispatch columnist Bill McClellan may have been among the first to suggest a Democratic Nixon taking run at White House. But national media have since picked up on the fact that Nixon, a Democrat, has turned up the ability to appeal to Republicans as part of this year's re-election effort, as chronicled by the Huffington Post. “I think if Gov. Nixon were to run for president in 2016, he would use the Bill Clinton model from 1992 and run as a centrist or moderate,” said David Kimball, professor of political science at the University of Missouri–St. Louis.

Democratic incumbent Clint Zweifel gave his acceptance speech just before midnight Tuesday, after a night of number watching in a close race with Republican challenger Cole McNary.
Democratic incumbent Clint Zweifel and Republican challenger Rep. Cole McNary faced off in the Nov. 6 election for the position of Missouri State Treasurer. As results came in Tuesday night, both candidates gathered with friends and family at St. Louis area watch parties. Initially, it was a tight race, but ultimately Zweifel declared victory and thanked his supporters just before midnight. "I think a lot of this illustrates hard work and investment in each other," Zweifel said. With 100 percent of the precincts counted early Wednesday morning, Zweifel had 50.3 percent of the vote and McNary had 45.5 percent of the vote. Zweifel tells Patch McNary did call him and concede Tuesday night. Both parties tell Patch they knew it would be a …

These two Republican lawmakers in the Missouri General Assembly worked on legislation this session that affects residents of Clayton and Richmond Heights.
A Republican lawmaker who represents Clayton and Richmond Heights played a role in shaping this year’s session of the Missouri General Assembly. Meanwhile, another Republican lawmaker spearheaded an effort to provide some resolution to the ongoing debate over the court case Turner v. Clayton. The legislature ended its roughly five-month session on Friday, most notably adjourning without deals on sweeping changes to tax credit programs, local control of the St. Louis Police Department or a measure aimed at starting the process to build a nuclear power plant in Callaway County. The legislature did have a list of successful ventures, including ending the “franchise tax” on corporate assets and extending a prescription drug program to seniors…

Information about how much Missouri spends yearly can be three financial reports — and woe to the person who tries to make sense of them.
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. How much does the Show-Me State spend each year? There is no easy answer to that question, I am constantly told when I ask how much the Missouri government spends annually. Inevitably, I am also warned each time not to compare apples to oranges. There are numerous financial reports floating around the halls of state government, all with different numbers. Then analysts and experts are always …
