MO-4 and MO-5 Election Updates

Okay, I’m assuming that everyone knows the winners and losers so far (9:55 cst).

Congratulations Senator Rubio. Congratulations Congressman Webster. Thank you for Alan Grayson’s bitter tears. Thank you, thank you thank you!

And so on and so forth. A lot of big wins, a few heartaches.

Ace is covering the election results, as is Red State, Townhall, The Other McCain, and Michelle Malkin.

The two races I’m closely watching tonight, are MO-4, Skelton vs. Hartzler and and MO-5, Cleaver vs. Turk.

Here are the results, so far:

Missouri – District 4

67.5% of precincts reporting

Vicky Hartzler(R) – 50%  76,827 Votes
Ike Skelton (D) – 45%  68,602 Votes

Missouri – District 5

9.0% of precincts reporting

Jacob Turk( R) 58% 9,076 Votes
Emanuel Cleaver (D) 39% 6,052 Votes

Hartzler is projected to be the winner in District 4, taking over a seat that was held for over 30 years by Skelton.

With only 9% of the of the vote counted in District 5, and the urban votes not counted yet, Turk’s lead is looking precarious. He’s off to a good start, but it’s going to be a long night for Turk.



Missouri – District 5

66.6% of precincts reporting

The latest polls were much closer than this:

Emanuel Cleaver(D)61% Winner 70,330 Votes
Jacob Turk(R) 37% 42,896 Votes
Kansas City votes for the economy crushing Socialist. Nice going, there,  urban core. Jacob Turk would have worked his heart out for you.

Final tally in MO-5:
100.0% of precincts reporting

Emanuel Cleaver (D) 49% Winner 122,040 Votes
Jacob Turk (R) 48% 119,240 Votes
Randy Langkraehr (I) 2% 4,189 Votes
Dave Lay (I) 1% 2,412 Votes
PSSSST: Randy and Dave? Nice job, guys….Emanuel Cleaver thanks you.

Debbie Van Pelt McEnroe from the Lee’s Summit Trib:

It’s not over until it’s over. I interviewed someone at the Kansas City Election Board tonight. Missouri’s Centralized Voter Registration system was down (statewide) from 7:15 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. today. So, if someone wasn’t on the roles, the poll workers either sent them to the election board or gave them a provisional… ballot. They have 2 weeks to get those in to Sec. of State. Who knows what untrained election workers did in these cases?


Final results have changed:


Allen West wins in Florida.
Pat Toomey wins in PA.

  1. Wouldn’t call the Toomey/Sestak race quite yet. Still close to call with Dauphin County (Harrisburg) and Pittsburgh yet to count. It has been crazy down here in Southern PA with Democrats losing races by between 15 and 40%.


  2. It looks like Toomey will win PA although it is going to be very close. Toomey is going to nonetheless be very disappointed considering that he was supposed to win by much more than this. PA will be interesting to watch in 2012 as a 51-49 split could truly mean the commonwealth goes either way.
