The article noted incumbent freshman senator Claire McCaskill (D) was vulnerable in the Republican leaning state.[4] While it remained a toss up as to who McCaskill's competitor would end up being in the general election, challengers U.S. Representative Todd Akin, former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman and businessman John Brunner all presented a significant challenge to the vulnerable incumbent.
