Republicans debate 1 more time before Tuesday election
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Republican candidates for Missouri governor are debating Wednesday for the last time before next Tuesday's primary.
Businessman John Brunner, former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens, former prosecutor and state House Speaker Catherine Hanaway and Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder are facing off at 7 p.m. in a debate sponsored by the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and KMBC-TV, which will broadcast the event.
In previous debates, the candidates outlined plans for improving relations between communities and police and affirmed their support for gun rights and against abortion. Hanaway and Kinder emphasize their experience, while Brunner and Greitens emphasize that they are outsiders.
In the Democratic primary, Attorney General Chris Koster has not debated his lesser-known gubernatorial rivals.
The primary winners will face off in the Nov. 8 general election.
