Political Poll: Kinder or Montee, Who Has Your Vote?
If the election were held today, which Missouri Lt. Governor candidate would you vote for?
In the Presidential election, voters get to pick one ticket. If you vote for Barack Obama, you're voting for Joe Biden as Vice President. If you punch in Mitt Romney's name on Election Day, you’re also voting for Paul Ryan.
Missouri, on the other hand, is different. In Jefferson City right now Governor Jay Nixon, a Democrat, and his second-in-command Lt. Governor Peter Kinder, a Republican, lead the state.
This November 6, just six short weeks away, voters in Missouri will get a chance to decide what the leadership in Jefferson City will look like. Will one party take control, or will we have four more years of a split party?
Last week we asked your opinion on the Governor's race between Nixon and his Republican challenger Dave Spence. St. Charles County voters favored Spence 11-6.
This week we are turning our attention on the Lieutenant Governor. The Democratic Party nominee is former State Auditor Susan Montee. The Republicans will be going with current Lt. Governor Peter Kinder.
So tell us—who has your vote? Are you leaning toward the incumbent Kinder? Looking for some new blood in power with Montee?
