ST. LOUIS (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Kenny Hulshof accuses Democratic rival Jay Nixon of proposing $2.6 billion in new spending that would result in higher taxes for Missourians.
Nixon countered by repeatedly painting Hulshof as a Washington insider during a Saturday evening debate in St. Louis.
Hulshof is a congressman from Missouri's 9th Congressional District. Nixon is Missouri's attorney general.
The debate was the third in a series of four leading up to the Nov. 4 gubernatorial election.
