    the 8th includes the parts of the 3rd that he didn't do very well in back in 2010. It also includes Rolla, where he grew up. And parts of the area where he does have family ties

    but the D nominee is going to actually live in the district, so remove all the Carnahans you've heard of from the list. If Russ took a pass on MO2, he wouldn't then go for MO8

      Isn't Robin Carnahan's residence on the family farm outside Rolla? That would put her inside the district quite easily. I would suspect that her approval ratings are pretty high--she did a good job as SOS and there have been a lot of nice articles about the family recently, since, as of 2013, there will be no elected Carnahan officials in the state for the first time in a long time. I suspect she might even be able to outpoll Nixon and McCaskill, especially if she got a crappy opponent (aka-Sarah Steelman).  

      According to the official bio on her campaign website, "Today, in addition to her duties as Secretary of State, Carnahan continues to manage her family’s 900-acre farm and cattle operation near Rolla." ("About Robin" page of
