Missouri

9 seats: 4R, 5D     R 51

Richard Gephardt was the only Missouri incumbent to win by a margin of less than 25% in 1998, and all incumbents are likely to win in 2000, including Ike Skelton in one of the most Republican-leaning districts represented by a Democrat. Three of nine seats are open; Pat Danner's district is very vulnerable to a Republican win.
