62 percent of Missouri voters approved Clean Missouri, which included limiting lobbyists, reducing campaign finance contributions, and created a new redistricting process. Democratic Representative Kip Kendrick of Columbia says he expects an attempt to bring the redistricting process of Clean Missouri back before the voters this year.
When Clean Missouri was brought before voters in 2018 it received both bi-partisan support and bi-partisan resistance. Many Republicans were against the redistricting element of Clean Missouri. However, Kendrick cites one Republican from outside the Show-Me State who supported it.
While Democrats feel the redistricting element of Clean Missouri prevents gerrymandering, Republicans feel it is an attempt by Democrats to flip some seats in the House and Senate. Last year, Republicans made a similar attempt to bring Clean Missouri back before voters. However, it fell short in the final weeks of the session.
