Bush swamped Gore as the Republicans show an overall dominance at the Missouri State Fair.

Rodger Oakes has more from Jefferson City.

Story:
RunTime:
OutCue: SOC

Republican Presidential nominee George W. Bush gained twice as many votes as Democratic nominee Al Gore in the Missouri Farm Bureau's annual State Fair. Republican John Ashcroft was the favorite for the U.S. Senate seat, while Jim Talent held a significant edge over Democratic candidate Bob Holden for governor. The Republican party's state spokesman Darrel Duwe.

Actuality: Duwe
RunTime: 5
OutCue: slaughter
Contents: Basically it was a slaughter for the Republicans. The Democrats have no desire for the results to get out.

But, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bob Holden puts little credence into the results, even though the poll has been accurate in 90% of its predictions over the past 20 years.
