Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon talks to supporters as he makes his acceptance speech at a Democratic viewing party at the Renaissance Hotel in St. Louis on November 2, 2004. Nixon, who is starting his fourth term as Missouri's top cop is now being seen as the head of the Democratic party in the state of Missouri since Claire McCaskill lost her bid to Republican Matt Blunt in the Governor's race. Missouri democrats lost several key spots in the 2004 election including the Governor's office, Lt. Governor and State Treasurer. (UPI Photo/Bill Greenblatt)
