Money flows to political campaigns for a reason and a political scientist at St. Louis University says a record amount of money has flowed to the gubernatorial candidates, because the stakes are extremely high. Ken Warren notes $17.5-Million has been spent in the race for Governor, so far. Warren says the two political parties are in a fierce battle for control of the Capitol. He predicts Republicans will retain control of the Senate and House and the only chance Democrats have of retaining any power, is to keep the Governor’s office.
