Missouri Democratic Chair, Jean Peters Baker, attributes Democratic losses in her and other states partly to the "different kind of voter" that Donald Trump brought out.

Despite losing big in November, Democrats remain confident for the next election.

Neither the Missouri nor Kansas Democratic Party saw the success of presidential candidate Joe Biden reflected in their state races. Now each will evaluate what needs to be done to get better results in 2022.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
