This is Curt Holden reporting from Jefferson City where Republican Candidate Chuck Pierce late Tuesday night expressed his disappointment about losing the Missouri State Auditor's race.

Pierce said he and his campaign team were successful in making the race against Democratic candidate Claire McCaskill much closer than expected but that he could not get enough voter support in Saint Louis and Kansas City because of the riverboat gambling issue.
