Ashcroft Draws Criticism During GOP Debate

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft is facing heavy criticism over his stance on military discounts and benefits. During a debate featuring Ashcroft and other Republicans running for governor, he was asked what Missouri should do to support military members and veterans.

Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe, a Republican who is also running for governor, tells Missourinet he was appalled by Ashcroft’s comment….

Other candidates running for governor, State Senator Bill Eigel (eye-gull) and Missouri House Democratic Leader Crystal Quade, have also condemned Ashcroft’s comments.
