Missouri Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Jason Kander started out his Tuesday campaigning in St. Louis, then began making his way to Kansas City to finish his statewide campaign. He did make one pit stop, though, in his home town of Columbia to cast his own ballot.
Kander, a Democrat, cast his vote around noon at Community Methodist Church in Columbia. He has returned to this location to vote for several years and says that he recognizes many of the volunteers.
“It’s pretty exciting,” he said.” We have all the momentum in the race. We really feel that we have the lead in the race. It’s really about making sure people get out to vote,” Kander said he was happy to vote with his wife and son. “My three year old has been wishing everyone a happy election day so, we’re having a pretty good time,” Kander said.
