The Oakville Democrat says he "will not quietly disappear into the fog," after loss to Ann Wagner.
The following statement was distributed via email Wednesday morning from the Glenn Koenen campaign for Congress: I want to thank all of you for the help you gave me and support you gave my campaign. You were inspirational and helped keep me committed to the fight. The election result in the 2nd Congressional District did not come out the way that I – and you – wanted. The mostly official tally shows Ann Wagner with 235,607 votes to my 145,257, giving her a 23% margin of victory. The good news is that my cost per vote was about 36¢ to her $12.00. (Alas, the winner in the cost effective category doesn’t get a job in Washington.) Today we need to congratulate Governor Nixon, Senator McCaskill, our new Secretary of State, our returning …

The Oakville resident faces an uphill challenge in his bid to succeed Rep. Todd Akin in Washington.
In less than two weeks, voters in Missouri's new 2nd Congressional district, which spans parts of St. Louis and St. Charles Counties. While the frontrunner, Republican Ann Wagner is already in the "closing argument" phase of her campaign, Democrat Glenn Koenen is still trying to make first impressions. Koenen, the longtime Executive Director of the Circle of Concern Food Pantry, admits he doesn't have the name recognition and financial backing that Wagner, a former Ambassador and RNC Co-Chair, does. He also hasn't been helped by the Democratic Party's decision to stay on the sidelines, or the recount following his narrow win in the August primary against Harold Whitfied which not only cost him time on the campaign trail, but also money …

A recount didn't change the outcome of Missouri's 2nd congressional district democratic primary vote.
Democrat Glenn Koenen, of Oakville, will face republican Ann Wagner for Missouri's second congressional seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The recount completed Wednesday shows Koenen winning the nomination with 7,894 votes to Whitfield's 7,848. Totals changed slightly with the recount but not enough for Whitfield to capture the majority of the votes, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday. Learn more at stltoday.com.
