Wrap: The candidates for Missouri Governor did not quit campaigning the day before the election.

Challenger Dave Spence used his stop in Columbia to express his view that Governor Nixon hasn't been telling the truth to Missouri.

Nixon campaign manager Oren Shur says the Governor wants to appeal to his track record at his last stops.

Actuality:  SHUR.WAV
Run Time:  00:12
Description: "He's moving around the state really talking to about the issues that are important to Missourians right now and that's job growth, maintaining our fiscal responsibility, keeping taxes low, and moving our economy forward."

Spence's final campaign focuses on Central Missouri, while Nixon's decided to use Kansas City as his last stop.
