Jul 10, 2008

This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: July 10, 2008 - Two candidates for the Democratic nomination for Missouri attorney general found virtually no areas of disagreement during a forum Thursday night held at Webster University, but they strongly criticized a third candidate who didn’t attend.

Reps. Margaret Donnelly of Richmond Heights and Jeff Harris of Columbia criticized the third candidate, Sen. Chris Koster, D-Harrisonville, for supporting state government spending policies favored by the Legislature’s Republican majority. They also called into question Koster’s acceptance of large campaign donations from wealthy donors, such as Rex Sinquefield, who tends to give to pro-school voucher candidates.
