For one Democrat, war still a key issue

Democrat Tommy Sowers is an underdog in his election fight against seven-term Rep. Jo Ann Emerson in Missouri's 8th Congressional District, a sprawling, heavily-Republican territory in the southern part of the state.

He's also a veteran of Green Berets, and in a time when questions about jobs and the economy are consuming the political dialogue, Sowers is calling for an end to the conflict in Afghanistan and making the war a central plank of his campaign.
