Jefferson City, MO – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Blunt is awaiting the vote in his hometown of Springfield, Missouri. Blunt faces Democratic Secretary of State Robin Carnahan in the race for the seat being vacated by Senator Kit Bond. St. Louis Public Radio's Marshall Griffin reports.
Blunt and his wife Abby arrived at Glenstone Baptist Church around 11-AM to cast their ballots, with their young son Charlie in tow. Blunt spent the day before flying around Missouri, making ten campaign stops before returning home to Springfield late last night.
Campaign Chair Ann Wagner says Blunt appeared at more than 930 events during the entire length of his campaign, and will spend the evening with family and friends, quote, "eagerly awaiting the only poll that counts."
Blunt's watch party is being held at the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield. In Jefferson City, I'm Marshall Griffin, St. Louis Public Radio.
