Tracy McCreery (D) defeats the Democratic Party nominee, Jeff O’Connell, and the republican candidate.
From the Missouri Secretary of State:
Unofficial Election Returns
State of Missouri Special Election – Legislative District 83

Brennan, Patrick REP 1,005 26.8%
McCreery, Tracy IND 1,647 43.9%

At least Patrick Brennan (r) got to add still another proof to the General Theory of Crazification.
The St. Louis County republican web site reacts predictably.
Abortion activist, Tracy McCreery, wins Missouri 83rd District election.
While Missouri needs a government to support all of our businesses, identity politics will be the order of the day in the 83rd.
“…Missouri needs a government to support all of our businesses…” That world view would probably explain some of the result for the republican candidate.
“…identity politics will be the order of the day…” Project much?
