Overview
Missouri has voted for the winner in every presidential election of the 20th century, except in 1956 when voters backed Adlai Stevenson, thereby earning the sobriquet of "bellwhether state."  In 2000 the "Show Me" state was a hotly contested battleground.  Its 11 electoral votes went narrowly to Bush, as he gained a plurality of 78,786 votes (3.34 percentage points).  Gore carried 12 counties: 3 in the St. Louis area, 4 in the Kansas City area, 3 in the southeast tip, and a couple of others by thin margins.  Missouri also saw tight races for governor and U.S. Senate.  After the loss of Gov. Carnahan on Oct. 16, "Don't let the fire go out," became a rallying cry for Democrats. Controversy arose on Election Day in the city of St. Louis, when a judge ordered polls be kept open past closing time. 
General Election Activity
In the U.S. Senate race, Gov. Mel Carnahan (D), killed in a plane crash three weeks before the election, nonetheless defeated incumbent John Ashcroft (R) 50.5% to 48.4%; Gov. Roger Wilson appointed his widow Jean Carnahan to the position.  In the race for governor, State Treasurer Bob Holden (D) defeated Rep. Jim Talent (R) 49.1% to 48.2%.  In the 6th congressional district Sam Graves (R) defeated incumbent Steve Danner (D) 50.9% to 46.8%.
