Incumbent Peter Kinder won re-election on November 6, 2012.[1]

In 2011, incumbent lieutenant governor Peter Kinder (R) was considering a run for the state's top office, challenging Gov. Jay Nixon (D) for his seat. A poll his campaign financed showed him trailing Nixon 48-41 in August, just days before the Riverfront Times broke with a sex scandal that caused Kinder to lose support from some key political allies. [2][3]

Kinder dropped out of the gubernatorial race on November 18, stating he would run for re-election as lieutenant governor instead.[4] He faced state Senator Brad Lager in what was one of the election cycle's most contentious primary races.

In the end, Kinder edged out Lager in the primary and went to defeat Susan Montee (D), Matthew Copple (L) and Constitution Party candidate Cynthia Davis in the general election.[5]
