MO Attorney General Race - It will be HOT


It's August in Missouri, so it is hot. Seems a little early for a Democratic primary battle for 2008 to heat up, but the Missouri Attorney General's race is sure to be a good one.


We had what looked like a clear race for Rep. Jeff Harris (D), then we had Rep. Margaret Donnelly (D) jump in. Sen. Chris Koster (?) jumped off the sinking ship and joined the Democratic Party (WELCOME!!). Some unions on the western half of the state love Koster for his stand to get the Cass County Justice Center built with union labor. Those unions have endorsed with large contributions to Koster (they are a loyal bunch). Jeff Harris has worked hard for Democrats across the state in his role of House Minority Leader. This is a primary, so only the die hard liberal voters will show up. That means KC, St. Louis and Boone County.


This race is getting hot because Jeff Harris is getting some key endorsements. Key as in former Governor Roger Wilson, a beloved D in this state. The CCP's endorsement process in this race is going to be very enjoyable from a political junkie's perspective. See the press release below:


It's Official: Governor Roger Wilson Endorses Jeff Harris for Attorney General


Columbia – Governor Roger Wilson announced his endorsement of House Minority Leader Jeff Harris for Attorney General today in Columbia. Wilson, who most recently served as Missouri Democratic Party Chairman, said he’s endorsing Harris now, more than a year out from the 2008 elections, because “Democrats need to elect the next generation of leaders, and Jeff, at 42 years old, represents what’s best about that generation.”
Jeff will be our next Attorney General because he has a message that will appeal statewide. “As Attorney General, count on Jeff to initiate new efforts to keep Missouri families safe in their communities and on the Internet, to crack down on consumer fraud and to defend the environment from polluters,” Wilson said.

“Governor Roger Wilson is a leader of the Democratic Party and one of the finest public servants in our state’s history,” Harris said. “I am truly honored to have earned his endorsement.”

Jeff Harris was the first Democrat to announce his candidacy for Attorney General. Harris is currently a member of the Missouri House and represents part of Columbia – which is also the hometown of Governor Wilson. Harris has served as House Democratic Leader and has a proven record of standing up for Democratic values and fighting for working families. Learn more about Harris by visiting

Koster will have more money, but KC and St. Louis primary voters are smart and will remember who is a life long Democrat.

Didn't Koster support Ashcroft over Mel Carnahan? That is treason in the Democratic party.

No doubt Koster will have cash, he sold his soul to stem cell. What if he has to give back his $125,000 from Stowers and $75,000 from Wash U?

If Sen. Jolie Justus says "vote for a real Democrat" then St. Louis goes to Donnelly, KC & Columbia goes to Harris and Koster is left without a base. Unions vote over 50% Republican, so they won't even pull the D primary ballot. You say how well the union tactic of telling people to pull a ballot worked in the Bartle/Johnson primary - it didn't.

The unions wasted money on Johnson. Bartle can win any primary on the Republican side. In primaries, there is no room for moderates.

Did Koster really support Ashcroft? Be prepared for Jean Carnahan to make a comeback. "Chris Koster ran helped support John Ashcroft against my late husband. Keep the fire going, vote for (pick one: Donnelly or Harris), a real Democrat."

Here's a link to an article about Koster supporting Ashcroft over Mel Carnahan.

Speaking of base, what is Koster's? Rural Dems? Dems who like corporate pig farms? Dems in KC and Columbia that like to see funding for MU and UMKC cut from the MOHELA plan?

He hasn't even announced, but Victor Callahan's employer, KC Building & Trades has endorsed Koster of AG. Wait a while, dude. Run for Ike's spot. You would be perfect.

There is a lot of wow gold in the game and you can try your best to earn them as much as you can.You only want to get more and more World of Warcraft Gold to let you become strong, so you can go to upgrade and kill the monsters alone.it is the beautiful new beginning of the game, and I like the warcraft gold I want to satisfy you too.However you can also go to buy wow gold alone or with your friends together.You can change them through the cheap wow gold. Yet the freedom you seek is as close as the next moment.
