Eric Greitens made a bet that he could overcome his past as a disgraced ex-governor—previously accused of sexual assault by his mistress and of physical abuse of his son by his wife—and win a political comeback by running a scorched-earth campaign for U.S. Senate.
On Tuesday night, that bet came due when Republican voters in Missouri went to the polls. They gave Greitens a decisive answer: Nope.
When the primary race was called as a victory for Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, Greitens was in a distant third place out of the crowded field of Senate hopefuls.
