  • JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Republicans have regained a two-thirds majority in the Missouri House heading into a big showdown with Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon over his vetoes of tax breaks, abortion restrictions and other issues.
    Republican Tila Hubrecht, of Dexter, won a special election Tuesday in the 151st District.
    That gives Republicans 109 House seats, the minimum two-thirds majority required to override gubernatorial vetoes.
    Republicans already hold a two-thirds majority in the Senate.
    Republican Shawn Sisco, of Rolla, also was leading in early election returns for a special election in the 120th House District.
