A pair of Missouri Republican Senate candidates are in something of a barnyard fight over an ad that accuses one of them of donating to a farm animal rights group. The candidate, businessman John Brunner, calls the ad an attack on his family because the donation really came from his daughter.
The ad, aired by the campaign of state Treasurer Sarah Steelman, accuses Brunner of giving $10,000 to an "extreme animal rights group that was founded to give farm animals rights."
