    U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Ballwin) survived the closest race of her congressional career, holding off Democrat Cort VanOstran in a year that saw key House districts across the country flip from red to blue. VanOstran, a 30-year-old Clayton lawyer with a Harvard degree, ran an energetic shoe-leather campaign, betting that a healthcare platform would persuade voters in a traditionally Republican stronghold to consider an earnest Democrat.
  • Dem lawmaker: 'There's plenty of competent females' that can be Speaker instead of Pelosi

    Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said Wednesday that a congresswoman besides Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should be the House Speaker. “There’s plenty of really competent females that we can replace her with,” Ryan told reporters, before listing people such as Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) as potential candidates, The New York Times reported Thursday. His comments come as the battle for Democratic leadership in the House intensifies. Pelosi, who held the Speaker position from 2007 to 2011, expressed confidence on Thursday that she had enough support to be voted into the role. But many lawmakers are insistent about the idea of having...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge is in a serious bind as she faces mounting pressure to challenge Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for the Speaker’s gavel — a move that could divide the Ohio Democrat's allegiances between the insurgency she supports and the Black Caucus she once led. A group of anti-Pelosi insurgents has been ramping up efforts to recruit Fudge, a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), amid criticism that the majority-male cohort is trying to oust the top-ranking female Democrat in the “Year of the Woman.” Pelosi allies have been deriding the rebels as “five white guys,” a...

    An illegal alien previously detained by a sanctuary city in New Jersey has been accused of killing three individuals in Missouri, but federal authorities argue that these crimes could have been prevented if better cooperation existed between immigration officials and local enforcement. According to Fox News, "Luis Rodrigo Perez, 23, a native of Mexico, is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding two others on Nov. 1 and fatally shooting a woman the next day."Perez had previously been detained by Middlesex County, NJ authorities on domestic violence charges. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a detainer on the illegal alien, which...

    Members of Missouri's legislative black caucus on Thursday elected state Rep. Steven Roberts, D-St. Louis, to chair the group — but Roberts' ascension drew criticism from one of his colleagues who two years ago accused Roberts of raping her. Rep. Cora Faith Walker, D-Ferguson, announced Thursday on Facebook that she was leaving the caucus. "I have resigned from the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus," Walker wrote. "I stand in my truth and am incredibly grateful to my colleagues who stand with survivors."

    A dog in St. Louis recently received a lifesaving gift from one of her puppies. A few years ago, Star and her litter of 13 puppies were found in a box in southern Missouri. The mom was dehydrated and malnourished, local news station Fox 2 reported. When Star and her puppies were taken to Murphy Animal Hospital in High Ridge, veterinarians there determined she was in advanced kidney failure -- a near-death experience Star somehow managed to survive. She was then adopted by the owner of the animal hospital, Shannon Flegle, and many of her puppies went to homes in...

    A Mexican national charged with killing three people in Missouri in early November was released from a New Jersey county jail in 2017, despite being the subject an active immigration detention request, federal authorities said Friday.

Perez had been kicked out of his apartment by the roommates, Steven Marler, 38, and Aaron Hampton, 23, The Associated Press reported, citing a Springfield police probable cause affidavit. The...

    McCaskill, Cordray 'freed from constraints' of not being able to say what they really think. Losing Democratic politicians say they can finally tell the truth now that they are "freed from the constraints" of needing the support of their constituents. "It occurred to me that I am now freed from the constraints of running for or holding public office," said Richard Cordray, failed coup-leader and losing candidate in the Ohio governor's race. Cordray says now that he does not have to be accountable to voters, he can "speak more naturally" about what he really thinks about issues.

    After being voted out of office, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) is placing some blame on Fox News. McCaskill, a moderate who attempted to distance herself from "crazy Democrats" during her re-election campaign, lost her bid for a third term on Tuesday to Josh Hawley, a Republican attorney general who President Trump had campaigned for the day before the election. On Wednesday, in an interview with The New York Times, McCaskill cited Trump's inflammatory rhetoric as having had an impact, noting that it had been spread to rural voters by Fox News.

We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work. This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed.”  UPDATE: Hannity defends his onstage appearance at the Trump rally. What I said in my tweet yesterday was 100% truthful.

    Every red state Democratic senator who voted against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation in October lost their re-election bids. Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Joe Donnelly of Indiana voted against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick – all three lost on Tuesday. The only red state Democrat to support Kavanaugh was rewarded with a re-election victory. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin won Tuesday night against Republican state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. His success allowed the Democratic Party to salvage what was otherwise a lackluster performance up and down Senate races. Trump campaigned...

    One of the top abortion activists in the Senate has gone down in defeat. Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill fell behind to pro-life candidate Josh Hawley after announcing her opposition to U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and ultimately she lost her re-election bid today. A pro-abortion Democrat, McCaskill was considered one of the most vulnerable senators running for re-election in the November midterms. Josh Hawley, an attorney and former clerk to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, serves as Missouri’s attorney general. Prior to his time as the top prosecutor for the state, he was an appellate litigator and senior...

I was invited by President Trump and the White House to introduce him, and it went through many different configurations. When I was first contacted, it was to introduce the president. Then, they said, “Hey, if you’d like, you could be in the audience and the president could call you up and you could speak for a few minutes and then sit back down. What do you want to do?” So I thought about it....

    If the volume of early and absentee voting is any indication of voter interest in this election, polling places in the counties in the suburbs of St. Louis, Mo., will be packed Tuesday. Rich Chrismer, the long-time elections director in St. Charles County, said Monday his team had already seen 11,000 walk-in voters compared to the typical 2,000. Mail-in absentee ballots, he said, were also way up. "It almost looks like a presidential election," said Mr. Chrismer, who said voters in his county were motivated by the battle over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the tight race...

    President Donald Trump stepped away from his microphone and remained silent except to urge calm and prayers Monday after a woman fainted at a rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. His supporters responded by singing "Amazing Grace" and many are now praising him for the tender moment. "That's one of our great people right there. Take your time," Trump urged as the woman suffering the medical emergency was treated by first responders in an 8-minute video of the moment posted on YouTube. As they waited to see the outcome of the emergency, some people yelled support for the president as well...

    CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. — President Trump on Monday paused his campaign rally in Missouri for roughly 10 minutes after an elderly woman in the crowd collapsed and required medical attention. Trump was recounting his presidential victory of two years ago and chiding Hillary Clinton for calling some of the president's supporters "deplorables" when something appeared to catch his eye in the crowd. "Is there a doctor in the house, please? Doctor? Please. Thank you," Trump said, pointing toward the crowd gathered on the floor of the Show Me Center. The president urged medical staff that converged on the woman to...
