Missouri and Kansas get their U.S. Senate matchups
The race for U.S. Senate in Kansas appears to be incumbent Republican Jerry Moran’s to lose. But to some voters, the world looks different this election cycle. Plus: What to look forward to with Missouri's own U.S. Senate showdown.
Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran has held his seat since 2010, and it would be easy to assume that conservative Kansas would back him again. But KCUR's Laura Ziegler reports that some voters are rethinking their priorities after the last six years, while Democrats are rethinking their strategy for campaigning.
Republican Eric Schmitt and Democrat Trudy Busch Valentine won their nominations for the U.S. Senate on Tuesday and are on a collision course for November. St. Louis Public Radio’s Jason Rosenbaum and Jonathan Ahl talk about the results from Tuesday's primary.
