Koster Takes Charge As He Gives $100,000 to Missouri Democratic Party
By Jo Mannies
(Updated 10:50 p.m., Sat., June 7)
Seven years after leaving the Republican Party, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has in effect taken the reins of the Missouri Democratic Party.
That point was underscored Saturday night when — shortly before the Democrats’ annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner — Koster presented the state party chairman a check for $100,000….
….Koster, who is running for Missouri governor in 2016, told St. Louis Public Radio that he expects the money to be used primarily to help Democratic candidates for the state House and state Senate, where the party currently is heavily outnumbered by Republicans….
“…he expects the money to be used primarily to help Democratic candidates for the state House and state Senate…”
Such a novel concept. You know, it’s not a particularly good thing when right wingnut republicans effectively have a veto proof majority in the General Assembly. You’d think someone who is supposedly in charge would understand that before now.
