Missouri Democrats gave a thumbs-down to governor Bob Holden in the state's primary election August 3, 2004 voting instead for state auditor Claire McCaskill by a margin of 6 percentage points. During the campaign for the Democratic nomination for governor, McCaskill criticized the incumbent for using his executive power to withhold state aid for education last year as part of his running battle with the Republican led legislature over the state budget. Her education platform calls for requiring each of the state's 524, school districts to be audited by the state auditor once every three years and rewriting the school aid formula, which is being challenged in court.
