Gov. Nixon sets special election to fill Missouri House vacancies

( KTRS )  – Special elections have been scheduled to replace three Missouri lawmakers who resigned.

One vacancy comes after former Republican House Speaker John Diehl, of Town and Country, resigned in May. He admitted to exchanging sexually suggestive text messages with an intern.

Democratic Rep. Kevin McManus resigned after his election to the Kansas City City Council. Independence Republican Rep. Noel Torpey left office in December to take a job with a group that has lobbied the Legislature on utility issues.

Democratic Sen. Paul LeVota of Independence says he’ll resign in August. He announced his resignation following accusations that he made unwelcome sexual advances toward interns.

Gov. Nixon says elections will be held Nov. 3.
