The clamor for change fueling Donald Trump's Republican presidential campaign may help a little-known Democrat upset a powerful GOP senator in red-state Missouri on Election Day.The contest between Missouri's secretary of state, Democrat Jason Kander, and Sen. Roy Blunt did not start out high on either party's list of competitive Senate races in a state Trump is likely to win. Kander also has sought, unapologetically, to exploit the outsider mood that's propelled Trump to the fore, criticizing the 66-year-old Blunt as a Washington insider who is part of a failed system.Operatives on both sides say the top Senate races remain very close, and thus far, at least, GOP candidates have not cratered in the polls as a result of Trump's problems.Blunt counters Kander's attacks by tying the Democrat to Hillary Clinton, who is highly unpopular in the state, and painting him as too liberal. Democrats have a financial advantage going into the end stretch and intend to use it in part by running more ads that tie GOP incumbents and candidates to Trump.
