Officials in the Carnahan for Senate Campaign say a national trend toward Republicans led to their narrow defeat. Carnahan Campaign Manager Roy Temple says Democrats across the country flew into a strong Republican headwind. Roughly speaking, Carnahan won the metro areas, but lost to Talent in outstate Missouri. Carnahan won 77-percent of the St. Louis vote and 74-percent of the vote in Kansas City. She didn’t win vote-rich St. Louis County by a wide enough margin to catch Talent, though she did win more than 200,000 votes. Talent won 185,000 in St. Louis County. Talent won 58-percent of the vote in Springfield.
