Correction: Mo. 5th Dist. Race Not As Close As Reported

KCUR incorrectly reported that Congressman Emanuel Cleaver beat Republican Challenger Jacob Turk by only 49 percent to 48 percent. In fact, the final tally was: Cleaver, 53 percent (101,076 votes), Turk, 44 percent (84,415 votes). KCUR's story quoted faulty information posted on two separate election websites late on election night.
