DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY DECISION: EMILY WEBER STOPS CONNOR NOWALK TO WIN MISSOURI HOUSE DISTRICT 24 PRIMARY!!!
This one is important for a lot of reasons but mostly because this is the Downtown Kansas City to Midtown district Missouri House.
There is little influence in Jeff City with this position BUT it's a great bully pulpit for the Kansas City Democratic Party loyalists.
Late night conclusion that only our mostly loyal Midtown readers will understand . . .
THE DEFEAT OF THE HIPSTER DEVELOPER PROGRESSIVE IN FAVOR OF THIS ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATIC PARTY LADY MIGHT SLOW REAL ESTATE SPECULATION IN & AROUND THE LOOP!!!
Or maybe not . . .
Either way, we expect to hear more from this office in the near future given that Rep. Judy Morgan had a more subtle style of leadership.
Final vote tally:
EMILY WEBER (D) - 5,841 - 70%
CONNOR NOWALK (D) - 1,760 - 21%
SAMMIE ARNOLD (D) - 768 - 9%
Her victory statement:
"Tonight Kansas City has voted for progress! I’m honored by the number of KC voters who put their trust in me by making me the Democratic Nominee for the 24th House District. I’m excited to serve and bring my perspectives as the first Asian American woman in #moleg! #TeamEmily"
