This is the final edition of Campaign Watch for the 2012 election cycle. News Director Bob Priddy asks our commentators, Jo Mannies of the St. Louis Beacon (stlbeacon.org) and Steve Kraske of the Kansas City Star (kcstar.com) to look at the red and blue spots on the Missouri maps and tell us what those colors tell us about Missouri’s political leanings. We also ask them to read their tea leaves and project where we’ll be in November 2016.
We have archived all of our discussions since beginning them in July as part the historical record of this campaign year. Check the Campaign Watch archives for our discussions of the ebbs and flows of the campaigns in Missouri.
