Missouri Primary

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When the polls close at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday night, election officials will spend the next few hours counting the votes cast in the Missouri Presidential Primary, which many consider a waste of money.

It is costing an estimated $7 million to put on Tuesday’s presidential primary and despite the time and expense, no delegates will be awarded to the Republican National Convention.

Newt Gingrich isn’t even on the ballot. Those who voted today in Missouri were able to choose from Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul alongside campaign dropouts Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain and Jon Huntsman.

The GOP says it’s looking to caucuses beginning March 17 to award the state’s 52 delegates.
