Wrap: Peter Kinder claimed victory Tuesday night over his Democratic opponent Susan Montee -- becoming only the second Missourian to serve three terms as lieutenant governor. 

... This, from a candidate who was once thought to be the presumptive Republican front-runner for governor... before damaging media reports detailing his visits to a St. Louis strip club.

Kinder told supporters at his watch party he would work to overcome the divided state government of Republicans and Democrats.           

Kinder indicated he would not seek reelection.
