A dispute between the two major candidates for governor over a 1992 plan to build roads in Missouri rages on a day before their election will be decided. Republican Jim Talent has come close to making his campaign a referendum on the 15-year highway plan. Talent says the state promised Missourians something it has failed to deliver. Democrat Bob Holden calls the plan “outdated and financially disastrous”. And he claims Talent didn’t fulfill his promise when, as a member of the state legislature, he approved the plan. Holden says Talent’s $10 billion dollar bond package for roads would endanger the state’s AAA bond rating.
