Meanwhile in Upstate New York, The Democrats picked their nominee in the race to replace Kristen Gillibrand in Congress.

His Missouri connections are mentioned on his website:

Scott has worked as an aide to two Democratic Governors, Mel Carnahan and Roger Wilson, rising to the position of Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Roger Wilson of Missouri.

and by the Columbia Daily Tribune

A former Kewpie is in the running to replace Kirsten Gillibrand, who vacated New York’s 20th District congressional seat to take the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Hillary Clinton.

Scott Murphy, who graduated from Hickman High School in 1988, announced his campaign to become the Democratic nominee yesterday, touting his experience in job creation and economic development.

Murphy lives in Glen Falls in the upstate congressional district, where he is managing director of Advantage Capital Partners, a private equity firm. Dubbing himself “Mr. Jobs,” Murphy says he has helped develop more than 20 businesses resulting in the creation of more than 1,000 jobs.

So whenever this election is held, a Democrat with a Missouri connection will be the one man who can hinder the annoying bragging of right-wing Republican talking heads. Here’s a wish to Scott Murphy for the maximum luck in his bid to become the 4th Congressman Murphy in Washington.
