Both Kenny Hulshof and Jay Nixon held brief press conferences after the KY3 Debate Friday.
Below are highlights:
Hulshof: Nixon"Lacks Transparency, Lacks Specifics, Playing It Safe"
Hulshof charged that Nixon's Attorney General office has shown a "lack of transparency" over the years, and cited audits by Democratic Auditors Claire McCaskill and Susan Montee to back up his claim. Specifically, Hulshof criticized Nixon for the use of a state car during campaign events. He then went on to blast Nixon's lack of specifics on issues. "Investing in human capital, wonderful soundbite. What does it mean?," asked Hulshof. "When you have very few bold ideas, you do what's politically safe."
Nixon: Hulshof's Numbers "Jump Around", "Doesn't Get" Impact of China Trade
Nixon took Hulshof to task for "jumping around," on the costs of their respective proposed plans. He says Hulshof's programs add up to around $750 million dollars, while his only cost a bit more than $300 million, yet Hulshof charges Nixon can't pay for his. Also says: "We don't know exactly how much money is in the till." He went on to target his Republican opponent on his pro-trade vote with China, which Nixon believes cost Missouri 45,000 jobs. Finally, Nixon specifically detailed how he would change the "single occurrence" portion of Missouri's worker compensation law.
