Tomorrow is the Missouri Primary, a turning point in the 2012 election season, as voters pick the final candidates for this fall’s general elections.

While not every political seat is up for grabs, and some parties are running candidates without internal opposition, a lot of key races will impact the stretch run between now and November.

Below is a list of races for major state seats and who is in the running for each. Only party races with multiple contenders are listed, which means many incumbents and third-party candidates won’t appear. Where an incumbent is among the list of contenders, though, his or her name appears in bold:


(R): Todd Akin, Jerry Beck, Sarah Steelman, John Brunner, Mark Memoly, Mark Patrick Lodes, Robert Poole, Hector Maldonado



(D): Jay Nixon, Clay Thunderhawk, William Campbell
