Democratic Missouri House member Jason Kander has won the race for Missouri secretary of state.
The secretary of state is responsible for overseeing Missouri elections and is responsible for the state archives and state library.
Kander is an attorney from Kansas City and first was elected to the state Legislature in 2008. He announced his bid for secretary of state shortly after Carnahan announced she would not run.
Schoeller was elected in 2006 and served in the leadership for the Republican-led House.
