The next Attorney General of Missouri will be one of three men: Democratic incumbent Chris Koster, Libertarian Dave Browning, or Republican Ed Martin. Host Don Marsh talks with Ed Martin. He is an attorney and former Chief of Staff to Governor Matt Blunt.
Prior to running for Attorney General, Martin was vying for the U.S. Senate and the Second Congressional District.
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.”
