KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Unofficial primary election results show that John Rizzo and Ingrid Burnett have won hard-fought victories in their District 11 State Senate and District 19 State Representative races, respectively. By the end of a roller-coaster night on Tuesday, August 2, 100% of Missouri precincts had been reported.

The results show that Rizzo held off a charge from runner-up Jessica Podhola to finish with just over 46% of the vote in the District 11 Senate race. Podhola earned 38% of the vote, ultimately falling roughly 800 votes shy of Rizzo. Burnett and Manny Abarca battled back and forth in the District 19 Representative race throughout the evening, with Burnett squeaking out a 20-vote win, 763-743.

“It did end up being very close, but I feel very good about it. I’m really happy with the result,” said Burnett, who was quick to thank her poll workers and supporters. “It’s critical to have good people out there who can reach the voters and make sure that everyone gets information.”

Burnett noted on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 3 that she had not yet spoken with Abarca regarding a concession, although she had spoken with the Secretary of State about the results. The margin for recount is 1%; Burnett’s 20-vote margin over Abarca represented a margin of roughly 1.33%.

“I had a conversation today with Jason Kander, the Secretary of State, and he was very pleased to see that it was over the margin,” said Burnett.

Missouri statewide results are featured below the three local races. Democrat Chris Koster will face off against Republican Eric Greitens for Governor, Democrat Jason Kander will meet Republican Roy Blunt in the U.S. Senate race, and Democrat Teresa Hensley will face Republican Josh Hawley in the Attorney General race.
