  • Jay Nixon has based his strategy in his campaign for Missouri governor on opposing the record of incumbent Republican Matt Blunt. The Democratic Attorney General says that won't change now that Blunt's out of the race.
  • A federal judge has ruled that Missouri must issue a new specialty license plate that reads "Choose Life." The Joint House and Senate Transportation Committee rejected the Choose Life plates in 2006 after two abortion-rights members said they would oppose it.
