“ IT WAS A THUMPIN' ! ”

Dem McCaskill ousts GOPer Talent in tight Senate race

Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Claire McCaskill narrowly defeated Republican incumbent Jim Talent in one of the nation’s most closely watched contests on Tuesday.

“Tonight we have heard the voices of Missourians and they have said we want change,” McCaskill said in declaring victory at the Democratic election party early this morning.

Talent called McCaskill about 1 this morning to concede.


“It just looked like we couldn’t do it,” he said. “The headwind was very strong this year.”

Credit for McCaskill’s victory goes in part to her success in garnering more votes from Republican-rich rural turf.
