It's Election Day — again — in Kansas City
Kansas City’s tenant union formed a political organizing group last year. The group has been campaigning hard for six candidates as it tries to shift the balance of power in Kansas City with today's election. Plus: Missouri voters could decide whether the state constitution should be harder to change, but it may face a tough reception at the polls.
Kansas City’s tenant union formed a political organizing group last year to help elect progressive candidates. Their endorsed candidates did well in the primary, and today on general Election Day, KC Tenants Power will see if they succeeded in changing the balance of power in the city. KCUR’s Celisa Calacalbreaks it all down.
