Previously: MoAvenger: a scrappy little Democratic broadsheet

We took notice of the race with this item at the MoAvenger:

…The primary race was so important that the Senate Republican committee (Majority Fund, Inc.), invested $113,000 to get DeStefano through the primary. Senator Shields added another $10,000 contribution to DeStefano’s race…

The establishment republican candidate lost in the primary. Big time.
