Almost two months afater the August primary, people living in a southwest Missouri State Senate district finally learn who the contenders will be. The name of one of the Demcrat candidates in the August primary was not printed on ballots in McDonald County, meaning a special election had to be held yesterday on that one race in that one county. The district has five other counties. The winner is Randall Vaught. In August, when his name was left off the McDonald County ballot, he lost – because opponent Tom Capelli got all the Democrat votes in McDonald County. But after those votes were thrown out and the new election was held, Vaught becomes a winner by about 240 votes. He’ll be an underdog in November against Republican Larry Gene Taylor.
