Debate at Missouri Western State U.


Kansas City, MO – Family and corporate farming fill most of Missouri's Sixth Congressional district. Voters have traditionally been conservative, choosing whether to send a Democrat or Republican to Washington.

The makeup has a bit of urban and it's generally St. Joseph and North Kansas City. There's also a touch of suburbia.

But when you think of Missouri's Sixth, you think "northwest"...rolling fields of corn and soybeans.
