The Democratic Committee Members in HD57 met today to nominate a candidate for the February 2nd special election to replace T. D. El-Amin. Jake Wagman reported on Twitter that the Democratic nominee is lawyer Hope Whitehead.

Quick investigation cannot determine the Presidential results in HD57. Other than to say that Obama won it by at least 90 percentage points.

Also, the 2009-2010 Missouri Manual shows that there’s 12 vacancies in the 14 Republican Committee spots in the district. Which means that Whitehead will likely win without opposition unless someone gets so motivated that they qualify as an Independent.

Concise summary: Hope Whitehead will win easily in February.
