Surprise Upsets in Tuesday's Primary

Kansas City, Mo. – Tuesday's primary elections in Kansas City yielded some serious surprises: a pink-haired Libertarian is still in the running for a seat on the City Council; a Kansas City mayor has been denied a second term for the first time in almost a century; and the woman who, until recently, was the highest-ranking politician in Johnson County, Kansas showed up at the victory party of one of the winning mayoral candidates.

Lynn Horsley covers City Hall for The Kansas City Star, and she's been all over this race. Speaking with KCUR's Frank Morris, she said yesterday's turnout was the big disappointment.
