Missouri candidate filing closed yesterday, and the Secretary of State reports that 20 individuals are challenging Sen. Claire McCaskill (D), but there is little doubt that the August 7th primary will yield the incumbent facing Attorney General Josh Hawley (R).
In the House races, all eight incumbents are seeking another term, and each is favored in the ensuing general election. In total, 53 individuals have filed papers to run for the House of Representatives, including 22 Democrats, 18 Republicans, and 13 minor party registrants.
The Governor’s election is not on the ballot until 2020.
