News : Senator Lager has no regrets in Lieutenant Governor challenge
Posted by John on 2012/8/12 14:40:00 (510 reads) News by the same author

State Senator Brad Lager of Savannah has come up about 15,296 votes short of stopping Peter Kinderís effort to get a third term as Lieutenant Governor. Lager easily carried northern Missouri counties in Tuesday's primary but it was not enough to win.

In an interview with the MissouriNet, Lager says he has no regrets. The senator has drawn criticism for running a campaign largely funded by only a few contributors but has no apologies for not having a more broadly-financed effort.

Lager says he knows nothing about a private, secretly-funded groups' campaign mailings attacking Kinderís character late in the campaign. He says he has not seen the materials.

Kinder will face former state auditor Susan Montee in November. It has been more than seventy years since someone was elected to a third term as Lieutenant Governor. Democrat Frank G. Harris was elected to the position in 1932, 1936, and 1940. He died in office shortly before the end of his last term.
