(Reuters) – State Attorney General Eric Schmitt has won the Republican nomination for Missouri’s U.S. Senate race, Edison Research projected on Tuesday.
He beat out Eric Greitens, a former governor who resigned in disgrace in 2018, and Representative Vicky Hartzler, who was endorsed by U.S. Senator Josh Hawley. He will face a Democratic candidate in the Nov. 8 midterm election.
