Nixon calls special elections in two House districts, including one in St. Louis

Gov. Jay Nixon has set dates to fill two vacant seats in the Missouri House, including one in a St. Louis-based district.

Nixon's office announced on Thursday that the governor set April 2 as the date for special elections to fill vacant House seats in the St. Louis-based 76th District and the Lawrence County-based 157th District.

The 76th seat became vacant after former state Rep. Chris Carter, D-St. Louis, was elected to the St. Louis Board of Aldermen. That district, which covers part of north St. Louis, is overwhelmingly Democratic.

The 157th District became vacant after state Rep. Don Ruzicka, R-Mt. Vernon, was appointed to serve on the state Board of Probation and Parole. While the 157th District leans Republican, Democrat Charles Dake won a 2006 special election in a similar district.
