Campaign Missouri 1992
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Missouri's campaigns in 1992 were the most exciting in years. Missouri citizens contributed the most money ever to their candidates, and the candidates spent almost all of it. Voter interest was high, reflected in voter turnout several percentage points higher than in previous elections. The 1992 campaigns were also the longest, the most negative, and the most professional in many years. Even the results were dramatic: a party turnover in four state executive offices and two congressional seats. Not everyone considered all of these changes in Missouri politics to be positive. Soon after the election, on November 20, 1992, campaign managers and reporters from throughout Missouri gathered at the University of Missouri-Columbia to discuss and dissect the races. This book offers their analyses and evaluations.
