Elected Governor

Bob Holden

The Missouri gubernatorial election of 2000 was Missouri's 50th gubernatorial election. The election was held on November 7, 2000 and resulted in a narrow victory for the Democratic nominee, State Treasurer of Missouri Bob Holden, over the Republican candidate, U.S. Representative Jim Talent, and several other candidates.

Until 2020, this was the only time since 1972 that the winner of the Missouri gubernatorial election did not come from the same party as the winner of the presidential election held simultaneously (although Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore did win the popular vote; it would not be until the 2016 gubernatorial election that Missouri elected a governor from the party whose presidential nominee lost the national popular vote).

This gubernatorial election was one of the closest in Missouri history. Bob Holden did well, as expected in St. Louis and Kansas City. Talent easily won most rural parts of the state. Holden did poorly in the St. Louis suburbs. However Holden's wins in the Democratic strongholds of St. Louis and Kansas City proved to be just enough to push him over the finish line. Because the election was decided by less than 1%, Talent could have requested a recount that his campaign would have to pay for since it was not below half a percent. However, most recounts never see a swing of more than 1,000 votes, and Talent was trailing by 21,445. Talent ultimately did not request a recount and conceded defeat on the late evening of November 14. This remains as one of the closest gubernatorial elections Missouri has ever seen.
