Some news organizations have already called Missouri’s race for governor over, with Democrat Jay Nixon the winner. The Nixon campaign, though, isn’t ready quite yet to celebrate. Nixon for Governor spokesman, Oren Shur, points out that not everyone has voted with those in line by the times polls closed at 7pm being given the chance to cast their ballot. Also, Shur says the projections are based on exit polls and the campaign wants to see some hard numbers.
Polls have indicated that Nixon , the Attorney General, will easily win the race for Missouri governor over Republican Kenny Hulshof, the 9th District Congressman.
