Today is primary day in Missouri.
The most high profile race it that for senate in the GOP. John Brunner, Todd Akin, and Sarah Steelman are all running on the republican side.
Among proposals are increases in Missouri’s minimum wage and new restrictions on payday and other small loans. Other proposals would raise tobacco taxes.
Missouri Voters will also decide on a constitution measure today. The issue will expand an existing section of the Missouri Constitution to state that people can pray in public if they do not disturb the peace, and that a prayer is allowed before government meetings. It would state that students cannot be compelled to participate in school assignments or educational presentations violating their religious beliefs.
We will have the results of the primary election tomorrow on Wake Up Columbia.
