(KFVS) -

Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder won a victory Tuesday in his challenge of the wording of the state insurance exchanges on the November ballot.

A judge says a Missouri ballot issue regarding state insurance exchanges should be changed before the November election.

Kinder and other Republicans challenged the wording written by Secretary of State Robin Carnahan calling it "biased."

In his order, Judge Green wrote that "correct ballot summary is warranted" according to state law, and that the new ballot language should say, "Shall Missouri Law be amended to prohibit the Governor, or any state agency, from establishing or operating state-based health insurance exchanges unless authorized by a vote of the people or by the legislature?"

Carnahan has 10 days to appeal.
