Bill Stouffer says his bloodhound, Duke, has been a popular sidekick at campaign events. Now, the long-eared, droopy-eyed dog is starring in a campaign commercial.</p><p>The spot opens with Stouffer&#39;s wife, Sue Ellen, saying ambiguously that he&#39;s loyal, protects those he serves, fights for what&#39;s right and hunts for the truth. After Stouffer thanks her for the praise, she jokes that the compliments were directed at Duke.</p> Thu, 26 Jul 2012 13:11:08 +0000 Associated Press 18226 at http://kbia.org Dog takes starring role in Missouri campaign ad Missouri lawmakers unlikely to pass legislation making I-70 a toll road in 2012 http://kbia.org/post/missouri-lawmakers-unlikely-pass-legislation-making-i-70-toll-road-2012 <p>It appears unlikely that Missouri lawmakers will pass any legislation this year that would turn Interstate Highway 70 into a toll road.
