TWMP: Koenig vs. Stream and a week left in the primaries


On Sunday’s This Week in Missouri Politics, host Scott Faughn hosts a debate between Senate District 15 candidates Rep. Andrew Koenig and former Rep. Rick Stream on economic development, how to make Missouri a place to do business and what they would do specifically to spur investment in the state. They also discuss their experiences and accomplishments in Jefferson City, and what sets them apart.

On the opinion maker panel, Missouri Democratic Party spokesman David Turner, Mayor Francis Slay spokesman JP Johnson, Republican strategist and longtime guest David Barklage, and Rep. John Wiemann talk about the Stream/Koenig race, Koster’s position in the Missouri governor’s race opposed to the Republicans, how the Republican candidates stack up and transparency in campaign donations. They also discuss the Republican National Convention.

Both discussions go into overtime and can be viewed on

TWMP will air at 11:00 a.m. in the St. Louis area on ABC 30 KDNL and in mid-Missouri on KRCG at 6:00 a.m. The show is available online after noon at
