Our governor isn’t a big fan of Rick Perry trying to take our jobs. Jay Nixon is fighting back against a radio ad in which the Texas Governor encourages businesses to consider moving to his state.
Nixon’s campaign committee is running an ad on St. Louis radio station KTRS that defends Missouri as a better place to do business than Texas. The station had previously decided not to run the Perry ad.
Nixon’s office also sent a letter Tuesday to several Chamber of Commerce members in Missouri, saying he’s disappointed the group is hosting an event with Perry.
Perry will speak Thursday at a chamber luncheon in St. Louis, and attend an event sponsored by a coalition urging Missouri lawmakers to override Nixon’s veto of an income tax cut.
