Americans for Prosperity launches ad for override of right-to-work veto

Today Americans for Prosperity Missouri announced it will be running new television advertisements starting Thursday. The six-figure ad buy represents another major investment, on top of previously announced ads (see background). The ads will last several weeks and be broadcast across the state. The new ad focuses on the urgency of overriding Gov. Nixon's veto of right to work in the coming weeks.

Rachel Payton, AFP Missouri's Deputy State Director, released the following statement about the ad:

"Right to Work is vital to Missouri's future successes. This legislation is proven to create more high-paying jobs and boost overall economic health in the 25 states that already embrace this great idea. Right to Work has created 3.6 million jobs over the past 10 years in these states. It's time we bring some of that success to Missouri."

"It's no secret that AFP has been on the front lines of the battle for Right to Work in Missouri. You can expect to encounter our TV and radio presence all the way up until the Legislature votes on September 16th. Our organization has knocked over 70,000 doors, made over 250,000 phone calls, and has had thousands upon thousands sign our petition in favor of this policy. Right to Work is extremely important in getting Missouri back on a path to prosperity, in order to create more good-paying jobs, and keeping people in the state. All eyes will be on state lawmakers to reject Governor Nixon's veto and stand up for this sensible, pro-growth policy."

Let me see if I have this right. The Chamber gets subsidized so it can help fight for less workers rights and to damage unions/working people? We also learned this week that the golf course and airport are subsidized and that well over 60% of r-8 students qualify for free meals. Some of you are not being conservatives. Well over 60% of this county votes republican. It doesn't add up.
