Host Don Marsh talks with Jim Higgins, a computer systems analyst from Creve Coeur. Higgins is the Libertarian candidate for Missouri Governor. He faces incumbent Democratic Governor Jay Nixon and Republican Dave Spence.
Programming Note: Republican Dave Spence will be a guest on “St. Louis on the Air” on Monday, October 29. Governor Jay Nixon has not yet confirmed a date.
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon and Republican challenger Dave Spence both oppose a ballot measure that would give the governor greater power in picking Missouri's top judges.
A November ballot measure would change the seven-person panel that nominates judicial candidates to the governor. It would increase the number of citizens named to the panel by the governor to four instead of three, with the rest selected by an attorneys' association. It also would increase the number of judicial nominees the panel submits to the governor to four instead of three.
