State procurement officials in the Finance and Administration Cabinet recently approved the purchase of the eight vehicles, costing about $176,000.

With less than a week until Election Day, the poll is also the first time either candidate has received more than 50 percent of the vote, with Heiner leading 51 percent to Fischer’s 44 percent. Independent candidate Nimbus Couzin received one percent, with four percent undecided." [LEO Weekly]
