Senator Chris Koster voiced concern over the widening gap in the Senate and wondered about his own future should these trends continue.

Koster's unhappiness, which led to his flight from the GOP, might force him to the one place he has left to go - out of politics entirely.

Actuality:  KOSTER2.WAV
Run Time: 00:05
Description: If I have to quit this business because I refuse to go to one of the two extremes, then so be it.

Koster's comments came after being stripped of all his committees by President Pro Tem Michael Gibbons, with no committees yet assigned to him by Democratic leadership.
