    Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt dominated Tuesday night in the Republican primary race for state's U.S. Senate seat.

    The New York Times reported that with 58% of the results counted, Schmitt was up 46.1% to Vicky Hartzler at 22.7% and Eric Greitens at 19.0%.

    Dave Wasserman, editor of the non-partisan Cook Political Report, tweeted: "Eric Schmitt (R) wins the #MOSEN GOP primary, defeating Vicky Hartzler (R), Eric Greitens (R) and others."

    With his victory, Schmitt significantly boosts Republican's chances of keeping the seat after Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) announced that he was retiring.

    There was some angst over the summer that Greitens could win and that he would face an uphill battle to win in the general election.

    Greitens, a lifelong Democrat who became a Republican when it was politically expedient for him to do so, attacked a new pro-gun law in the state late last year, but then reversed course after facing substantial backlash.

    Over the summer, Greitens released an embarrassing campaign ad in which he stormed a house with a team of combat operators and said that he was issuing RINO (Republican in Name Only) hunting permits, which was widely condemned for implied political violence.

    Greitens resigned from office in disgrace in 2018 rather than face impeachment over allegations of sexual misconduct and campaign-finance violations.

    Greiten's wife accused him of being "unstable" and violent in a sworn affidavit during their child custody battle.

    "Prior to our divorce, during an argument in late April 2018, Eric knocked me down and confiscated my cell phone, wallet, and keys so that I was unable to call for help or extricate myself and our children from our home," the affidavit said. "In early June 2018, I became afraid for my safety and that of our children at our home, which was fairly isolated, due to Eric's unstable and coercive behavior. This behavior included physical violence toward our children, such as cuffing our then three-year-old son across the face at dinner in front of me and yanking him around by his hair."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
