The Missouri General Assembly convenes this week and Republicans are still in charge, with supermajorities largely unaffected by the 2018 election. They’re united with Gov. Mike Parson, who's a decidedly less controversial leader than predecessor Eric Greitens, who resigned in June.
Democrats have new leadership too, including Rep. DaRon McGee of Kansas City. The new assistant minority floor leader gave Statehouse Blend Missouri host Brian Ellison a hint about what he expects from this legislative session and how he thinks the parties will work together ... or not.
