Two Democratic candidates celebrated their victory to the Missouri State House of Representatives at Shakespeare’s South in Columbia Tuesday night.
As the 2012 election cycle ends candidates who donated large sums of their own money to their campaigns are waiting to see if those investments will pay off.
KBIA’s Jessica Reese recently interviewed Democratic candidate for State Representative in the 47th District, John Wright. He is challenging fellow newcomer to state politics, Republican nominee Mitch Richards, in the Nov. 6th election.
A two-guitar band featuring John Wright’s uncle played into the night at the Rocheport General Store as Wright beat out Nancy Copenhaver to win the Democratic nomination for state House district 47.
