Last Thursday, I went through the list of paired incumbents and since then, we’ve seen some resolutions to these situations. So let’s narrow the list a bit.

First, the big news that deserves to be above the fold is that Mary Still will challenge Kurt Schaefer in SD19. Which makes the 19th a marquee Senate Race in this cycle.

Chris Kelly has mentioned the 45th district (opened by Still’s departure) as suiting him best. So presumably the 50th district pairing is 99% resolved with Still opening up the 45th for Kelly. Which means the Democratic candidates eyeing the 48th (Stamper, Copenhaver, etc) can move forward unobstructed.


24 Mike Talboy (D-Kansas City), Judy Morgan (D-Kansas City)

Hearing that Judy Morgan will step aside for Mike Talboy in this seat.

36 Jason Holsman (D-Kansas City), Kevin McManus (D-Kansas City)

McManus in the 36th, Holsman to the 37th

89 Rick Stream (R-Kirkwood) and John Diehl (R-Town and County)

Stream to the 90th, Diehl to the 89th

92 Genise Montecillo (D-STL County), Scott Sifton (D-STL County)

Genise Montecillo in the 92nd, Scott Sifton to the 93rd

110 Paul Curtman (R-Pacific), Tim Jones (R-Eureka)

Curtman to 109, Jones in 110

148 Ellen Brandom (R-Sikeston), Steve Hodges (D-East Prairie)

Brandom to SD25, Hodges to HD149. Enjoy your open seat, Sikeston-Charleston!

160 Bill Lant (R-Joplin), Bill Reiboldt (R-Neosho)

Lant to 159, Reiboldt in 160

Almost there?

21 Tom McDonald (D-Independence), Ira Anders (D-Independence)

Heard a solid rumor of a resolution, will probably be official in a few days.

50 Caleb Jones (R-California), Chris Kelly (D-Columbia)

If you missed it above the fold, Kelly is likely to go to the 45th after he spent a few days looking at the 48th.

87 Stacy Newman (D-STL Co), Susan Carlson (D-STL Co)

Susan Carlson: “It’s looking like I will run in the U City, Clayton and Ladue district, but we’re still having talks and looking at the numbers.”

So I think that means Susan Carlson is running in the 87th and the next open district is the 83rd, it appears. And i’m having to compensate for the OA Redistricting site skipping out on us on a Friday.

88 Jill Schupp (D-Creve Coeur), Tracy McCreery (D-STL Co)

“Tracy has said that she will not oppose Jill, I think Jill is going to be one of the leaders in the Democratic Party in the near future.”

100 Don Gosen (R-Chesterfield), Sue Allen (R-Town and County), and Andrew Koenig (R-Winchester)

Koenig to 99, Allen in 100, no word on Gosen?

Up in the Air:

2 Casey Guernsey (R-Bethany), Glen Klippenstein (R-Maysville)

Guernsey is running for reelection while Klippenstein hasn’t decided as of yet

67 Sylvester Taylor (D-Black Jack), Steve Webb (D-Florissant)

76 Jamilah Nasheed (D-STL), Karla May (D-STL), and Chris Carter (D-STL)

85 Clem Smith (D-Velda Village Hills), Sharon Pace (D-Northwoods)

One source i’ve found mentions several rumored races..

* – Taylor v. Webb to happen.

* – Nasheed to run for the Senate v. Robin Wright Jones (Jamilah Nasheed’s Twitter mentions Jeff Smith as the last great leader in STL in the Senate, which I believe is part of the “subtly jab your future opponent before announcing” part of a campaign)

* – Karla May to move to another district (to the South?).

* – Sharon Pace to move to the 74th take on Churie Spreng.

So none of that is quite confirmed (IOW, none of this can be found as official or mentioned from another source yet), but I’d imagine at least 2 or 3 of those items happen.

119 Dave Schatz (R-Sullivan), Dave Hinson (R-St. Clair)

No comments from either Dave

152 Kent Hampton (R-Malden), Todd Richardson (R-Poplar Bluff)

Hampton is taking a look at HD150

No News?:

5 Tom Shively (D-Shelbyville), Lindell Shumake (R-Hannibal)

43 Jay Houghton (R-Martinsburg), John Cauthorn (R-Mexico)

57 Scott Largent (R-Clinton), Wanda Brown (R-Lincoln)

97 Gary Fuhr (R-STL County), John McCaherty (R-High Ridge)

103 Doug Funderburk (R-St. Peters), Kurt Bahr (R-St. Charles)

118 Ben Harris (D-Hillsboro), Paul Fitzwater (R-Potosi)

133 Thomas Long (R-Battlefield), Eric Burlison (R-Springfield)

163 Charlie Davis (R-Webb City), Tom Flanigan (R-Carthage)

And remember, the maps came out under 10 days ago. So there’s still more to come.
