Campaign Watch: What now? Where to? (AUDIO)

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.

Campaign Watch: ads and prognostications (AUDIO)

We’ll decide tomorrow who leads the state and nation. What are the worst things candidates’ advertising has said? How close will the races be in Missouri? And are reporters the right people to predict who will win? Missourinet News Director Bob Priddy and our Campaign Watch analysts, Jo Mannies of the St. Louis Beacon (STL Beacon.org) and Steve Kraske of the Kansas City Star (KCstar.com) discuss those and other issues. Our last Campaign Watch next Monday will be an autopsy on the campaign and the election.

Campaign Watch: road work/social media (AUDIO)

 

Missourinet News Director Bob Priddy talks today with our political analysts, Jo Mannies of the St.Louis Beacon (STLBEACON.org) and Steve Kraske of the Kansas City Star (KCSTAR.com). They look at whether lack of campaign money for down-ballot contests prompts candidates to spend more time on the road and using more social media.
