(From the Dave Spence campaign)
Dave Spence, Republican candidate for governor, today issued the following statement regarding his overwhelming primary victory:
"I’m honored to have earned the Republican nomination for governor. My campaign’s pro-jobs message is clearly resonating. In this economy, we need for a proven job creator in the governor’s office who cares more about Missourians keeping their jobs than him keeping his.
Jay Nixon is a career politician with an abysmal record as governor. The people of Missouri deserve a true leader who will do what’s in the best interest of all of our citizens, not what’s best for his political future.
Tonight is the beginning of the next chapter in our quest to get Missourians back to work. We can and must do better as a state. That starts by electing someone who actually understands how to create an environment where all Missouri businesses can thrive. I look forward to a spirited campaign with Governor Nixon and sending him home after a quarter century in office."
