Koster taking control in attorney general race

Democratic candidate Chris Koster, as I predicted earlier, appears to be taking control in the attorney general race.

With 3,285 out of 3,509 precincts counted, Koster, who trailed Republican candidate Michael Gibbons through most of the evening, is now leading with 52 percent of the vote to 47 percent for Gibbons.

In other state races, Jay Nixon appears poised to beat Kenny Hulshof by approximately 20 percentage points, while Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder is likely to be the only Republican holding statewide office when the results are all counted.

Democrat Clint Zweifel has overtaken Brad Lager in the state treasurer race and leads by three percentage points, while Democratic incumbent Robin Carnahan holds a 26 percent lead in the secretary of state race.

Kinder leads Dr. Sam Page 1,296,416 to 1,213,840 or by about three percent.
