Jason Kander: I will fight to close tax loopholes for companies that send jobs overseas and work to make sure our tax system provides targeted tax relief for small businesses and the middle class so working families can get ahead.

Akin, a six-term congressman, took exception. "If I were a career politician, I'd stay in a safe congressional district, wouldn't I? I don't think the Senate is the place for on-the-job training," he said.
Steelman responded that Brunner has surrounded himself with high-priced political consultants who are likely telling him that the winning message is painting his opponents as career politicians.
Brunner, who has poured more than $2 million of his own money into his campaign, called Akin's remarks about on-the-job training "political talk." His opponents' recent job experience "is a little different than being on the production line," he said.
