ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – First-time candidate Dave Spence will take on  Missouri Governor Jay Nixon in November.

Spence, CEO of Alpha Packaging, is a first-time political candidate.

“I’m proud of the fact that I’ve never held political office, ” he said.

He says his experience managing a business will make him a strong job-creator for the state. He says he’s already talked with Missouri House and Senate members about his goals and has gotten support from several Senators and Representatives.

In his victory speech, Spence thanked his primary opponents for a “good debate.”

“But now the real battle begins,” he said.
