Gov. Nixon: Why Missouri’s Better Than Texas

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – The war of words between the governors of Texas and Missouri has a new platform, this weekend.

In response to broadcast ads placed in Missouri by Texas governor Rick Perry, inviting businesses to move to his state, Jay Nixon is responding via Twitter.

On his official page ( @GovJayNixon ), Nixon is promising a “Top Ten” list of why he thinks Missouri is better than Texas.

His first posting, shortly after noon Saturday, was that Missouri has lower sales taxes on purchases like Cardinals jerseys and hair products.
