SHOW-ME INSIDER: BOTH HILLARY CLINTON AND KANSAS CITY NATIVE JASON KANDER CONFRONT MISSOURI DISASTER AMID EPIC BLACK VOTER TURNOUT DOWNTURN!!!
Even President Obama tacitly admits that African-Americans aren't really excited about voting for Hillary Clinton and this fact of life could hold devastating consequences for Missouri Democrats, especially upstart Senate candidate Jason Kander.
Just a bit of proof for this thesis . . .

Now let's work our way down ballot and toward the consequences of this trend:
Already Hillary is behind in solid Red State Missouri. Moreover, her losing to Trump will hurt MO SecState Kander and his Senate ambitions given that voters are less likely and crossover and have typically voted a straight GOP ticket all way over the past decade . . .
To shore up his African-American support in both KC & STL . . . Don't forget that the SecState enjoys support from The 'Black Community For Kander'group.
Still . . . The fact that Missouri hasn't had a statewide minority winning candidate from either party in . . . EVER might be just part of the reason that people of color don't seem to be too excited to vote in an election without Prez Obama.
Here's the word from a smarter Missouri Insider who offers an important perspective . . .
"The fear is that Missouri African-American voters are just going to stay home without President Obama on the ballot. There's little to no excitement in STL or KC urban core areas about Hillary Clinton's campaign and it's very late to start generating interest. Instead, we need to look at the consequences of this reality. Right now, more than anybody else, (MO SecState Kander) looks like he'll be hurt by minorities staying home on November 8th. His campaign was started by counting votes that simply won't be there this time around . . ."
And so, Democratic Party statewide gains over the past years might also be "Trumped" by the ongoing lack of excitement over the Hillary Clinton campaign that MSM doesn't often report.
