State Rep. Marlene Terry is the latest guest on Politically Speaking. The Democrat from Bellefontaine Neighbors talked about her pathway to the Missouri House and her goals as chairwoman of the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus.
Rep. Emily Weber joins Politically Speaking as a first-time guest. The Kansas City Democrat joins St. Louis Public Radio's Sarah Kellogg and Jason Rosenbaum to discuss House Democrats' success at picking up three new seats this past election. Weber also speaks on the work House Democrats are doing to build their party and what some of their priorities may be for the upcoming session.
St. Louis County Councilman-elect Dennis Hancock is the latest guest on Politically Speaking. The Fenton Republican talked about his win in this month’s 3rd District County Council race and his expectations for when he takes office in 2023.
Hancock will represent the council’s 3rd District, which includes municipalities like Fenton, Kirkwood, Valley Park and Manchester. He defeated Democrat Vicki Englund in what was the most competitive county council race of 2022.
Hancock will succeed Tim Fitch, a Republican who chose not to run for another term after his residence was drawn out of the 3rd District.
Missouri's 2022 election cycle is done! What did we learn from it?
Missouri Republicans won the two statewide races on the ballot yesterday. But calling the 2022 election cycle a disaster for Missouri Democrats would be a stretch — even though the party still has a lot of work to do to win statewide elections.
Ann Wagner (2022)
Congresswoman Ann Wagner is the latest guest on Politically Speaking, where she talked with St. Louis Public Radio’s Jason Rosenbaum about her re-election campaign in Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District.
Wagner has represented the 2nd District since 2013. The district changed after redistricting, and now contains parts of St. Louis, St. Charles and Warren Counties — as well as all of Franklin County.
For the past few years, Wagner has served on the House Financial Services Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee. She serves as the vice ranking members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee — and she could gain influence if she wins re-election and the GOP takes control of the House.
