St. Louis County Executive Race: Who Has the Edge?
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The race for St. Louis County Executive has been aggressive. Based on what we’ve reported, who has the edge?
“I don’t think that information tells me very much about what’s going to happen in the Stenger-Dooley race,” says University of Missouri – St. Louis political science professor Dave Robertson.
Robertson says Dooley’s strongholds, like Southeast and Central County, are looking like toss-ups today.
“I want to see how things turn out in those townships because I suspect Stenger can do quite well and even draw some Republicans to vote in the Democratic primary,” he says.
Looking at what we know, Robertson says it’s what we expected.
“Even though we have a very exciting county executive race, really on both sides – both Republican and Democratic primaries are very interesting – state-wide there’s not that much going on,” he says.
Robertson does say the low-key Republican primary for county executive is getting more votes than pre-election attention.
