The typical badge of a vote cast, the "I Voted" sticker.

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.

“Limited government, it’s an attitude.  Chris Koster has an attitude of…expanding government at the expense of a specific group of individuals.  If you have that kind of an attitude you pick a group and you decide they don’t get the same civil rights as everyone else.  The job [of the Attorney General] is to follow the law and keep things in the Constitution,” said Browning.

Programming Note: Republican Ed Martin, candidate for Missouri Attorney General, will be a guest on “St. Louis on the Air” on Wednesday, October 24th.  Incumbent Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster’s campaign has not responded to repeated requests for an interview.
