State Senator Lacy Clay can nearly call himself Congressman Clay. Clay emerged as the victor in a field of seven Democrats to succeed his father as Congressman.

Clay says he will soon have an opportunity to prove himself as a Congressman and it means a lot to be taking over the office of his father.
