State significance

Missouri no longer holds state-run presidential primaries, instead leaving it up to each party to run its own presidential primary or caucus.

Mississippi’s Republican county caucuses are relatively early in the primary and caucus calendar.

The state’s U.S. Senate race in 2022 was eventful, culminating in a close race; then-Attorney General Eric Schmitt won election to the seat. Missouri remains a relatively Republican-leaning state.
