JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Latest on the midterm election in Missouri (all times local):

11:30 p.m.

Missouri voters have approved a constitutional amendment that changes the experience necessary to run a bingo game.

Amendment 4 narrowly passed on Tuesday. It was among several ballot issues facing Missouri voters.

The Missouri Constitution currently requires two years of membership in an organization for someone to run that organization's bingo game. The experience necessary will drop to six months.

The amendment also removes constitutional language prohibiting advertising of bingo games.

Democrat Nicole Galloway will continue to be the only Democrat elected to a statewide office in state government, after defeating Republican Saundra McDowell in Tuesday's election.

Galloway was appointed auditor by then-Gov. Jay Nixon in 2015 after the death of Tom Schweich. Before that she served as Boone County treasurer. Galloway said audits during her tenure have identified more than $300 million in waste and abuses, and resulted in nearly three dozen criminal charges.

McDowell, an attorney who previously worked for two state offices, faced concerns about whether she lived in Missouri long enough to hold statewide office. News reports said she had a Kansas address when a furniture company sued her over a payment in 2013. The Missouri Constitution requires 10 years of residency at the time of election.

Incumbent U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill has conceded to Republican Josh Hawley in their tight race for the U.S. Senate but she promised she would continue fighting for the principles she and her supporters believe in.

McCaskill thanked Missourians for allowing her to serve in a long political career and said she felt good about her service. She urged her supporters to "keep the fire burning, justice is around the corner."

She joked that her mouth has sometimes caused her trouble but said she has actually tried to be careful about what she said.

"Not anymore," she said with a smile. "I will be out here fighting with you. I am not going away. I love this state and will continue to serve."
