Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Harrisonville/Columbia), who is openly considering entering the Senate race, leads Sen. McCaskill, 48-44%, according to the Remington data. Others thought to be less inclined to run also fare well. Doing the best is Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-St. Elizabeth/Jefferson City), who scores a 50-43% margin. State Treasurer Eric Schmitt and Rep. Jason Smith (R-Salem/Cape Girardeau) notch similar 49-45 and 48-45% spreads against the two-term Democratic Senator. We can expect a counter polling release to soon come from the McCaskill camp.
