Both gubernatorial candidates started off as members of the opposite party
Greitens, who served four tours of duty as a Navy SEAL officer, shared on the Fox News Opinion section that although he was born and raised a Democrat, he switched parties as an adult because liberals are “world-class hypocrites.” His column goes into depth on his decision, accusing liberals of spending other peoples’ money and slamming career politicians.
Koster, on the other hand, who was a Republican chairman of the Senate’s GOP caucus, abruptly switched to the other party as his popularity was rising. Koster disagreed with Missouri Republicans’ desire to criminalize early-stage stem-cell research, so he declared that the party not only “tolerates [that] lunacy, but embraces it.”
It’s going to be an interesting November for both the nation and the state.
