Host Don Marsh talks with the Libertarian candidate for Missouri Attorney General Dave Browning.
Dave Browning said incumbent Chris Koster has done a decent job “but is an unrepentant liberal.” He said Republican challenger Ed Martin doesn’t know what he’s doing. “I think the voters of Missouri need to have a chance to vote for someone who is conservative but not insane,” said Browning.
In the race for Missouri Attorney General, the two front runners, Democratic incumbent Chris Koster and Republican Ed Martin, agree on few issues. In fact, the two have very different visions of what the Attorney General’s office actually does.
In campaign ads, Koster holds a shotgun to show he’s tough on crime. And in interviews, Koster often refers to the office as “Missouri’s top law enforcement job.”
The Missouri Bar has canceled its planned debate for the state Attorney General’s race.
The debate had been planned for Friday, October 19th, in St. Louis at the Missouri Bar’s annual meeting. Spokeswoman Farrah Fite says they canceled the debate because Republican nominee Ed Martin did not RSVP by Thursday’s deadline. She added that incumbent Democrat Chris Koster and Libertarian nominee Dave Browning had accepted the invitation.
