Gov. Jay Nixon’s campaign took exception to statements made by Republican rival Dave Spence on the state of Missouri’s economy in a recent article in The Missourian. Spence claimed Missouri leaders are following a broken business model. Zac Wright, a member of the Missouri Democratic Party, said Spence was distorting reality when he made the following comment:

“We are near last in every measurable category from 50th in job creation to 49th in higher education funding. We’ve got unaccredited schools, we are losing jobs left and right in this state and we’ve had zero percent job growth for the past three years. Even Illinois, with a $25 billion deficit, or whatever crazy number it is, is growing at 1.3 percent.
