Steelman: Not Conceding Yet

Kenny Hulshof's campaign manager John Hancock just said that the Congressman is IN THE BUILDING. He timed it perfectly for the top of the 10 p.m. newscast. Will Hulshof be able to declare victory before the 10:00 p.m. newscasts go off the air?

One thing is clear: Sarah Steelman's campaign is not about to concede. They have internal numbers that show Steelman is down by just 8,000 votes statewide with several Steelman-leaning counties remaining.

That may be wishful thinking, but Steelman's Spence Jackson remains upbeat.

They are paying very close attention to votes coming out of the Kansas City metro area that have yet to be counted.

Bottom line: Some people thought this would be Hulshof in a walk. That won't happen. Steelman has proven herself to be a tireless campaigner. And if Hulshof is the nominee, he may want to call her for some tips on how to win over Southwest Missouri voters.

Still, there's no call yet. And you can bet the Associated Press will be real careful with this one.
