Missouri Election Results Midterms 2022

Elections 2022

(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the U.S. Senate race in Missouri for Republican Eric Schmitt.

Former Missouri Attorney General, Schmitt defeated Democrat Trudy Busch Valentine and kept what’s considered a safe Republican seat in GOP hands as the party fought for control of the Senate. 

Schmitt will take the seat occupied for the past 12 years by Republican Roy Blunt, who announced in March 2021 he would not seek a third term — ending a half-century career in politics.

And for the first time in more than a decade, Congressional District 4 is up for grabs after Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler lost the nomination. Running for that seat are Mark Alford (R) Jack Truman (D) and Randy Langkraehr, Libertarian. Eight total U.S. House seats will be voted on.

Voters will also decide on Tuesday if Missouri should join the growing list of states that have legalized the recreational use of marijuana for people older than 21 years old.

On Tuesday, 470 U.S. congressional seats — 35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats — are up for election. These elections will determine who has control over the two branches of Congress, and ultimately, who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office.
