GOP Gubernatorial candidate answers to party spokesman's "cheap hooker" comment.

Cara Karunaratne has more from Jefferson City.

Jim Talent refused to call for party spokesman Daryl Duwe's dismissal for comparing Secretary of State Claire McKaskill on his website to a "cheap hooker".

Talent said on KLIK radio in Jefferson City that though the comment was wrong, it did not merit a dismissal.

Actuality: KLIK
RunTime:
OutCue: ... or in personal life like that

Duwe removed the word hooker from his website and replaced it with the word "politician".
