Untitled. This extremely narrow victory is the tightest presidential result we’ve found for all of the 404 congressional districts we’ve released 2020 data for so far, and we’d be very surprised if it gets displaced when we wrap up our remaining three states (Alabama, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania).

Incumbent Congresswoman Ann Wagner and her opponent, outgoing state Sen. Jill Schupp, butted heads over scheduling a broadcasted debate. The two contenders have agreed to debate — but haven’t come to an agreement over the date or host. “Congresswoman Wagner is interested in the broadest segment of 2nd district voters learning firsthand about the disturbingly out-of-touch voting record Jill Schupp has compiled throughout her 20-year career in elected politics, which is why she accepted a joint debate invitation from two local television stations and the region’s largest radio station,” Kris Cook, Wagner’s campaign manager, said.

Republicans are playing defense in two suburban/exurban Twin Cities districts -- one where President Donald Trump eked out a win and another where he lost to Hillary Clinton by nine points. Untitled. WASHINGTON • A national Democratic Party organization that helps competitive campaigns with advice and money has added Missouri's 2nd District candidate Cort VanOstran to its "red to blue" list.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee made that announcement Friday, continuing a spate of events and stories indicating VanOstran's race with incumbent Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, could be close. Missouri's 2nd District is now one of 82 Republican-held House seats targeted by national Democrats. Wagner has had a decided money advantage, and she and her aides have expressed confidence she will win re-election. Last week, the head of the National Republican Congressional Committee told the Post-Dispatch that Wagner eschewed any help from that committee, the GOP version of the DCCC.

Faith leaders, small-business owners, social workers, nonprofit leaders, teachers, and students joined together as part of the historic dusting-off that was taking place all across the country. The group, which came to call itself Lancaster Stands Up, put its energy toward defending the Affordable Care Act from its multiple assaults in Washington and fending off the tea party-dominated state legislature in Harrisburg. The group’s town halls and protests began to draw eye-popping numbers of people and even attracted national attention. With their newfound confidence, Lancaster progressives looked toward local and federal elections. John Messmer for Congress - Accueil. 15-Point Plan - John Messmer for Congress. Talk is cheap.
So it’s not enough when candidates speak in generalities about reform but stay away from specifics. We need to address campaign finance reform, election reform, and ethics reform. With hopes of 'wave election,' Democrats lining up to take on Rep. Ann Wagner. By most standard political metrics, U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, should be able to safely count on re-election to a fourth term in November. But at least four Democrats are banking on this not being a standard political year, with a historically unpopular Republican president, an even less popular Republican Congress — and Wagner tied to both. “If this is a wave election, any Republican in a suburban district is going to be wary of the possibility of losing their job,” says political science professor Dave Robertson of the University of Missouri at St.
