Voter guide for Tuesday's Missouri primary race

Posted: Updated:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOV / AP) - Missouri's most competitive Republican governor's primary race in two decades is coming to a close Tuesday.

Missouri voters will choose from among four well-funded candidates in the GOP governor's primary. Democrats also will select their gubernatorial nominee to replace term-limited Gov. Jay Nixon.

And primary voters will pick a full slate of candidates for Missouri's statewide executive offices, the U.S. Senate and House, the state Legislature and numerous local offices.

Election officials are predicting a voter turnout of 31 percent.

Republican gubernatorial candidates John Brunner, Eric Greitens, Catherine Hanaway and Peter Kinder had together already spent more than $22 million as of about two weeks before the election.

Not since 1992 has there been a Republican governor's primary as hotly contested with as many candidates.
