Political history

Jacob Hummel first ran for the Missouri House of Representatives in 2008, seeking the seat for House district 108. He defeated fellow Democrat Arthur Gansner by earning nearly 86-percent of the votes. No Republicans chose to run in the November general election, making Hummel's election a mere formality.

Due to House redistricting following the 2010 United States Census the former 108th districts boundaries were altered and it was also renumbered as the new 81st District. Facing no challenger in either the August Democratic primary or the November general election of 2012, Hummel was elected to a third term in the Missouri House. He faced no opposition in the August Democratic primary of 2014, and in the general election he defeated Libertarian Party candidate Lisa Schaper by 78.98% to 21.02%.

Hummel was elected to the Missouri Senate in a special election held in 2016 to replace Joseph Keaveny, who had been appointed as an administrative labor law judge. He ran for a full term in 2018 but was defeated in the Democratic primary by State Representative Karla May.
