Democrat Claire McCaskill takes the podium with her family after defeating Republican Todd Akin in Tuesday’s election. Despite winning only four counties (St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Boone and Jackson), McCaskill won 54% of the popular vote, compared to 40% for Akin, to win the seat in Washington.
