  • Carthage Assistant Police Chief Randee Kaiser won the race for Jasper County Sheriff on Tuesday, taking 83 percent of the vote to Libertarian John Karriman’s 15 percent.
    It was the only local race left on the November ballot.
    On the national scene, President Barack Obama was re-elected to a second term, defeating Republican Mitt Romney in a hard-fought race in which the economy was the dominant issue.
    Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill retained her seat in the U.S. Senate and Jay Nixon became Missouri's first two-term governor in nearly two decades Tuesday night, while Romney captured the state's 10 electoral votes in his failed bid for the White House.
