Some Missouri House members will have primary opposition for re-election

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 | 11:11 a.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY — Several Missouri House members could find themselves running against colleagues in the August primary elections.

All of the contested races so far will be in Democratic primaries in the St. Louis area. Some House incumbents could end up matched up against one another because boundaries of the 163 House districts were redrawn based on the 2010 census.

The filing period for the Aug. 7 primaries opened Tuesday and continues through March 27, giving some candidates time to change the districts in which they'll run.
