Missouri legalizes recreational marijuana and other election results
In Missouri, voters have approved the recreational use of marijuana by adults and will send Republican Eric Schmitt to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile in Kansas, voters gave Democrat Sharice Davids another term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
It was a very good election for Republicans in Missouri, where Attorney General Eric Schmittwas elected by a double-digit margin to the U.S. Senate, and the state auditor election result means the GOP now holds every statewide office in the state.
But in Kansas, a different result withDemocrats able to point to some significant victories, even with some at least one major race still too close to call.
Brian Ellison recaps election results on both sides of the state line with KCUR news director Lisa Rodriguez and Kansas News Service editor Stephen Koranda.
