Talking Politics: $200,000 for a Judicial Race

Oct 15, 2014

Eli Yokley of PoliticMo joined the show this week to discuss an unusually large amount of spending in the race for the Cole County 19th Judicial Circuit Court.

  The Washington D.C.-based Republican State Leadership Committee has contributed $200,000 to its Missouri-based political action committee.  $100,000 of that money was passed along to Brian Stumpe, Republican candidate for the Cole County 19th Judicial Circuit Court, and the other $100,000 is on its way.  Stumpe hopes to unseat Democrat Patricia Joyce, who has served on the court since 2002.

"We heard some facts being spun" Thursday night when President Obama and Vice President Biden gave their acceptance speeches at the Democratic National Convention, report the watchdogs at FactCheck.org.

They and other independent fact checkers have compiled, just as they did at last week's Republican National Convention, a list of those things said by the two parties' standard bearers that don't quite add up or may give misleading impressions.
