if MO loses a seat eliminate MO-3 Russ Carnahan. Carnahan will probably run for LT Gov then Since LT Gov Kinder is going to vacate the seat to run against Governor Nixon. And I suspect he wants his Dad’s old Job as Governor. He will not challenge Nixon in a primary but it sets him up perfectly.Are you kidding me? Russ Carnahan for statewide office? Russ's more conservative and less goofy sister just lost a statewide race. Between her successful 2008 race when she garnered 1.7 million votes and her 2010 loss when she got a million less (0.7 million votes) the Carnahan brand has declined. When the people take to the streets demanding more taxes and more spending, I'm sure there will be a surge of nostalgia for Carnahan profligacy, but don't hold your breath.
Oh, and Republican Steve Tilley is warding off competitors for the GOP Lt. Gov. primary with a war chest of $750,000+ on hand. Whoever runs on the Dem side is going to have to draw lots of donors. I just don't see Russ doing that.
