Well, in todays diary i come back few. I come to senate races. In the poll of Dec 30 we can see like over any possible strong candidates for the senate race for Missouri, we can see like D Gephart is the more voted (with M Cleland for GA). In next diary you can see the poll:

When i was make the poll for senate race for Missouri i was let open democrat side, and the result not was bad for this state. Kit Bond not seems one of more strong republican incumbents.

After see this interesting result in the poll for D Gephardt i get interested in see if D Gephardt make the people feel more confiance in democratic party's chance of win this race.

I remember the list of possible candidates:

  1. Jeremiah W Nixon: MO 1956 Governor of Missouri 09- . Attorney General of Missouri 93-09. Lost for Senate 88 and 98.
  1. Roger B Wilson: MO 1948 Governor of Missouri 00-01. Lieutenant Governor of Missouri 93-00.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
