Democratic Committee Chairman seeks people interested in running against Republican incumbent Chrissy Sommer.
Democrat Tom Fann, a St. Peters insurance broker, announced Tuesday that he's dropping out of the race for State Representative in the 106th District. Fann would have faced incumbent Republican Chrissy Sommer, who just won the August primary against challenger Kyle Albert. Fann said watching the rhetoric in recent politics made him decide to leave the race. He said he filed the paperwork with the Secretary of State's office. "I don't want to be involved with it," he said. "I look at the way the county leans way right. (County Executive) Mr. Ehlmann is always against TIFs but all the Republican legislators have never done anything to make a level playing field in state law. Do people want rhetoric or do they want real solutions?" Fann, who …

St. Charles state representative and senate candidates begin filing despite court rulings that may change boundary lines of their districts.
Even as prospective St. Charles County state representatives and senators have filed for office, the boundary lines for the districts they would represent remain up in the air. Uncertainty still reigns because Missouri’s redistricting process remains a work in progress. Redistricting happens every 10 years, based on population shifts and increase noted in the latest U.S. Census. This year, however, lawsuits have thrown a blanket over the redistricting process for Missouri House and Senate seats, even as filing opened on Feb. 28. The party primary is Aug. 7 and the deadline for filing is March 27. A Missouri Supreme Court ruling in January struck down out previous senate districts, requiring the maps to be redrawn. A 15-day public comment …
