CCP Endorses Jay Nixon

The Committee for County Progress became one of the first organizations in Missouri to endorse Attorney General Jay Nixon (D) in his bid to defeat Governor Matt Blunt (R) when the membership unanimously voted on June 6, 2007.

Attorney General Jay Nixon has fought hard for the progressive values of this state and our citizens. Governor Matt Blunt has systematically rewarded donors and corporations with tax breaks, while balancing the budget on the backs of the poorest and the sickest in our society. Attorney General Nixon promises to make educational systems in Missouri a priority, setting forth a plan to reduce college tuition so that Missouri taxpayers can afford higher education for their children. Under Blunt, even in a year where the state has a large surplus, tuition costs continue to go up and Missouri taxpayers are faced with even a heavier financial burden.

The Committee for County Progress is proud to continue our tradition of endorsing progressive candidates.
