(From the Dave Spence campaign)
Republican Leadership in the Missouri House of Representatives and key Republicans in the State Senate have written an open letter to voters directly refuting Governor Jay Nixon’s misleading campaign ads. Specifically, the legislators debunk Nixon’s claims that he is “Independent” and works with Republicans. Signers of the letter include Republican Speaker of the House Tim Jones and Republican Senate Majority Floor Leader Tom Dempsey.
“For months, Jay Nixon has been raking in campaign cash from liberal trial lawyers and union bosses and then spending that money on misleading advertising and false attacks,” said Jared Craighead, Spence Campaign Manager. “These Republicans know better than anyone that Jay Nixon worked against them, not with them, on major issues like fending off Obamacare and balancing the budget."
The open letter to voters can be viewed here. The letter will also be submitted to newspaper opinion pages across the state.
Republicans signing the letter include: Speaker of the House Tim Jones, Senate Majority Floor Leader Tom Dempsey, Rep. Sue Allen, Rep. Scott Dieckhaus, Rep. Todd Richardson, Rep. Jeanie Riddle, Rep. Jason Smith, Senator Dan Brown, Senator Mike Kehoe, Senator Will Kraus, Senator John Lamping, Senator Brian Munzlinger, Senator Chuck Purgason, Senator Scott Rupp, Senator Eric Schmitt, and Senator Bill Stouffer.
