(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)- A retired St. Joseph physician is one of three Democrats working to oust incumbent Republican Sam Graves from his U.S. House seat.

A retired St. Joseph physician is one of three Democrats working to oust incumbent Republican Sam Graves from his U.S. House seat.

Andres said he's tired of Graves rubber stamping Trump administration policies and said the trade war is a bad thing for farmers in his district.

Also running for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House seat are Winston Apple of Independence and Henry Martin of Kansas City.

Graves is running unopposed on the Republican side, campaigning for his 9th term in the House.

The forecast for tomorrow will be very similar to yesterday: cooler, hazy, and sunny. The hazy sky is a result of the wild fires out to the west of us. Tonight should be cool as well with lows in the lower 60s and calm winds. Dry and sunny conditions continue into next week as temperatures stay seasonal. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and the humidity will be moderate, feeling a lot more comfortable than last week.
