We're less than a dozen weeks from Election Day.
The signs—both literal and figurative are hard to ignore. Earlier in August, Missouri had its to narrow down the field for statewide races. Ads for candidates are filling local airwaves and running non-stop.
And on Monday, the Republican National Convention kicked off in Tampa, FL. The four-day convention is expected to conclude with Mitt Romney officially claiming the Republican nomination for president, a title he has unofficially had for several months.
