The runner-up Democrats said, there was a good chat with her last night and I’m hoping to assist the Dems to win the ticket in the following year. Stephen Weber, who is a former Chairman of the Democratic Party commented that unifying Democrats in the incoming general election would not be a big problem.
Weber further said none of these candidates would be able to create problems because they were not deep enough in Missouri and they were unable to manage enough resources to make it an existential fight. This is not a big problem for the party. He said, which was the candidate who could get more favorites of advertising on television in the last few days. Schmidt beat his rivals, including former Gov. Eric Greitens and U. S Rep. Vicki Hartzler by a margin of double-digit while Valentine defeated his rival by a margin of 43% to 38%.
