The race to fill the remaining term of a southwest Missouri senate seat features a longtime state representative against a political newcomer.

Republican State Rep. Sandy Crawford is vying to become senator for District 28, which covers all or parts of eight counties. Crawford is opposed by Democratic Al Skalicky. The special election on Tuesday was called to fill the vacancy left by former GOP Sen. Mike Parson, who was elected lieutenant governor last fall.
