By Kevin Lavery, KWMU
The race for Missouri's seat in the U-S Senate is coming into the home stretch. Incumbent Republican Kit Bond is fighting off a challenge from Democratic State Treasurer Nancy Farmer and two third party candidates.
Bond is a three-term senator who serves on a number of influential committees. He also served two terms as Missouri Governor.
Farmer is a former state lawmaker who's making her first run at federal office.
