October 12, 2012

SAINT LOUIS, MO – Dave Spence, Republican candidate for governor, today issued the following statement regarding a lawsuit he filed against Jay Nixon for Nixon’s false and defamatory campaign attack ads.  Spence said the following:

“I filed this lawsuit for one simple reason, we need good people in politics.  If the standard for truthfulness in political campaigns is there is no standard, our state and country will continue to erode because good people won’t run for office.  Jay Nixon’s attack ads are false and defamatory and he knows it.  If he had a record of accomplishment to run on he wouldn’t need to lie about me, but he doesn’t.  Missourians deserve a governor who won’t lie about his own record and about his opponent.  Jay Nixon should be fired.”
