The St. Louis Post-Dispatch points out how the wide-open race for attorney general in Missouri has focused heavily on party-switcher Chris Koster:
JEFFERSON CITY -- Sen. Chris Koster of Raymore put a bull's-eye on his back last summer when he left the Republican Party, became a Democrat and declared his candidacy for Missouri attorney general.
Since then, the race for the Democratic nomination has centered on one question: Is Koster a true Democrat or a calculating opportunist?
His rivals -- Reps. Margaret Donnelly of Richmond Heights and Jeff Harris of Columbia -- say Koster is an impostor. They point to his votes for Republican bills cutting Medicaid and forcing voters to show photo IDs.
I also enjoyed this paragraph from the article:
Donnelly, 54, says she grew up the middle child of 11 children, with one bathroom to share. That, she says, taught her to stand up for her beliefs, respect others and negotiate when necessary.
