Linda talks to Tim Poor, National/World Editor at the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch, about the election races in Missouri, where George W. Bush made a stop today. Bush has the edge in Missouri, according to a Zogbe poll. Other major races include the Senate race between incumbent Republican John Ashcroft, and the state's Democratic Governor Mel Carnahan, who has died in a plane crash. Carnahan remains on the ballot, though, and his wife has said she will serve in his stead if he wins. And House Democratic leader Dick Gephardt is running for re-election.
