More Election Thoughts

As I’ve read the election results in the newspaper, I’ve been struck by something. Here in Missouri the state voted Republican for President but re-elected a Democrat governor and lots of Democrats to other state offices as well. In addition, we returned a Democrat to the Senate. Why or how did this come about? You would think that if we wanted a Republican President, we would have voted in a Republican in every open office. Perhaps Missourians are more independent minded folks who voted on individuals, not party platforms.
