Incumbent Emanuel Cleaver II (D) walked away with 85% of the Democrat vote against Maite Salazar district-wide. With 37% of the vote, Republican Ryan Derks beat out Clay Chastain, Weldon Woodward, Richonda Oaks, R.H. Hess and Jerry Barham to run against Cleaver and Libertarian Robin Dominick in November.

In the primary race for Jackson County Prosecutor, Republican Tracey Chappell will face Incumbent Jean Peters Baker (D) in November.
