The Democrats in Missouri
The Kansas City Star (subscription) has run a story about the Missouri Democratic Party being so fractured by a primary battle between incumbent Governor Bob Holden and Democrat state Auditor Claire McCaskill that it might "hurt the party's ability to muster the political resources to help [JF] Kerry win the state."
The primary is next Tuesday, and, win or lose, both candidates have agreed to attend a "unity breakfast" in St. Louis the next day. The next day, Edwards and Kerry will be in town for what Senator Jean Carnahan says will be a "great love fest."
Missouri has 11 electoral votes.
