Ad Stresses Decade of Law Enforcement Experience and Principles that Led Koster to Join the Democrats

First Ad Now Airing Statewide

Jefferson City, MO – Chris Koster’s campaign for Attorney General today announced the release of its second television ad. The thirty-second ad, “All Prosecutor,” continues the campaign’s unprecedented statewide television campaign for a down-ballot race.

The ad highlights how Chris Koster’s ten years of experience as Cass County Prosecuting Attorney make him uniquely qualified to be Missouri’s next Attorney General.It also addresses the principles and issues for which Koster has fought passionately during his 15 years in public service, and that ultimately led him to join the Democrats.

The ad appeals to the strong desire of Missouri voters that their Attorney General not be a typical politician, but rather a strong, independent leader who is prepared to be the state’s next chief law enforcement officer. The ad will begin airing in St. Louis and Kansas City today, while the campaign’s first ad, “Standing up for Everyone,” will continue to broaden its reach statewide, airing in Springfield, Columbia, and Cape Girardeau as of today.

Koster is the only candidate in the race, Democrat or Republican, with any prosecutorial experience. As Cass County Prosecuting Attorney, Koster amassed approximately 20 homicide convictions, two Supreme Court victories and thousands of felony convictions.

In August 2007, he gave up the fourth ranking position in the Missouri State Senate to join the Democrats, becoming the chamber’s lowest ranking member.

SCRIPT – “All Prosecutor.”

VO:Chris Koster spent ten years successfully prosecuting the bad guys – from deadbeat dads, to sexual predators, to one of the worst serial killers in U.S. history.

And when the Republican Party turned its back on stem cell research, workers’ rights, and child day care, Koster turned his back on the Republican Party.

It wasn’t easy. But leadership never is.

Koster, a Missouri Democrat for Attorney General.

All prosecutor. No politics.
