The Oakville Democrat says he "will not quietly disappear into the fog," after loss to Ann Wagner.
The following statement was distributed via email Wednesday morning from the Glenn Koenen campaign for Congress: I want to thank all of you for the help you gave me and support you gave my campaign. You were inspirational and helped keep me committed to the fight. The election result in the 2nd Congressional District did not come out the way that I – and you – wanted. The mostly official tally shows Ann Wagner with 235,607 votes to my 145,257, giving her a 23% margin of victory. The good news is that my cost per vote was about 36¢ to her $12.00. (Alas, the winner in the cost effective category doesn’t get a job in Washington.) Today we need to congratulate Governor Nixon, Senator McCaskill, our new Secretary of State, our returning …

The GOP candidate said District 2 needs some "tough love" and she's ready to deliver.
Republican candidate Ann Wagner of Ballwin became Missouri's Congressional District 2 post Tuesday evening, declaring victory just after 10 p.m. at the Hilton Frontenac. Wagner defeated opponents Glenn Koenen (D-Oakville), Bill Slantz (Libertarian-St. Charles) and Anatol Zorikova (Constitution Party-St. Charles) for the seat held by GOP Senate candidate Todd Akin. As of 11:40 p.m., unofficial results on the Missouri Secretary of State website report Wagner had a 60.1 percent lead over Koenen's 37.1 percent with 75 percent of precincts reporting. More than a hundred of Wagner's supporters, family and friends made their way to the Ambassadeur Ballroom at the Hilton-Frontenac, trickling in as polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday and staying strong…

The Oakville resident faces an uphill challenge in his bid to succeed Wildwood resident Rep. Todd Akin in Washington.
On Nov. 6, voters in Missouri's new 2nd Congressional district—which spans parts of St. Louis and St. Charles Counties—will determine the next holder of the Representative seat. While the frontrunner, Republican Ann Wagner is already in the "closing argument" phase of her campaign, Democrat Glenn Koenen is still trying to make first impressions. Koenen, the longtime executive director of the Circle of Concern Food Pantry, admits he doesn't have the name recognition and financial backing that Wagner, a former Ambassador and RNC Co-Chair, does. He also hasn't been helped by the Democratic Party's decision to stay on the sidelines, or the recount following his narrow win in the August primary against Harold Whitfied, which not only cost him …

After a recount resolved for the 2nd Congressional District's Democratic ticketholder, Republican candidate Ann Wagner says her goal is the same.
After the Aug. 7 primary race left Glenn Koenen the Democratic choice for the 2nd Congressional District with a slim winning margin of votes, challenger Harold Whitfield requested a recount. The recount was settled Sept. 12 and reaffirmed Koenen's win by 48 votes. Ann Wagner, Republican candidate for the 2nd Congressional District and a Ballwin resident, had won the primary for the Republican ballot spot without any questions. "We started this campaign nearly 17 months ago with a goal of returning strong, effective and conservative leadership to Congress," Wagner said in an email. "Regardless of who our political opponents are, that goal still remains." Wagner and Koenen are running for the 2nd Congressional seat for the Nov. 6 election…
