Texas governor went to Missouri looking to get jobs to move
From from dallasnews.com:
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has pulled up the welcome mat.
Last week, Nixon scoffed at Gov. Rick Perry’s jobs-hunting trip to Missouri. But that was when relatively tame TV ads were being aired with business owners touting the Lone Star State.
Nixon, a Democrat, changed his tune after a round of Perry-narrated radio ads that slammed his veto of a tax cut.
The first push back came from Secretary of State Jason Kander. He wrote Perry a letter basically suggesting he stay home.
Then Missouri radio station KTRS-AM in St. Louis refused to run the pro-Texas ad.
Nixon then went on the offensive, touting Missouri’s attractions and taking a few digs at Perry. He suggested the Texan is trying to “remain relevant to the political discourse” after deciding not to seek re-election.
