Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has received the endorsement of the Missouri Fraternal Order of Police in his race for governor of the state.

During a stop in Springfield today, Koster, a Democrat, said the endorsement means more than just a boost to his campaign.

"I've had a badge in my back pocket for 18 of the last 22 years, and I consider myself, because of the work I've done as prosecutor through two decades, to be a member of the law enforcement community.  And so, for me, it's more than just an endorsement.  It is family," he said.

Eric Greitens has emerged victorious from a bruising, four-way contest to be the Republican nominee for governor. He will face Attorney General Chris Koster, 51, who coasted to win the Democratic primary.
