1. Well, I guess I'll start with the obvious. McCaskill's up for re-election to the Senate.

Missouri lost a congressional seat in the census, so there will only be 8 House districts to run for. Mostly, the district that went away was Russ Carnahan's District 3 in St. Louis. Akin is expected to try to run for Senate, in which case Carnahan might run for the 2nd, though it is more conservative, being composed of the wealthier western parts of STL and its exurbs. But apparently he hasn't decided for sure whether to do this, or instead challenge Clay in the primaries for the 1st district.

ETA: "Composed", not "composted", lol...
