More Missouri Candidates Running Unopposed

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. (KMOX/AP) – More and more candidates for Missouri House seats are running unopposed.

An analysis by The Associated Press of last fall’s elections found that 60 percent of Missouri House races lacked a Republican or Democratic candidate.

That figure is up significantly since the last round of redistricting after the 2010 census. In the first decade of the 2000s, about 40 percent of Missouri House races lacked major-party opponents.
