By Matt Sepic, KWMU


St. Louis, MO – Even as Missourians have vacillated between the major parties in recent state and national elections, one thing has stayed the same: voters here have elected a Democrat to the office of state attorney general four times in the last 16 years. And it has been the same Democrat: Jay Nixon.

Now Nixon hopes to ride that wave of popularity into the governor's mansion. KWMU's Matt Sepic has this profile.
