Attorney General Jay Nixon campaigned in Springfield Thursday night with Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry. A 2-term Democrat from Oklahoma? Go figure.
Nixon held a low-dollar fundraiser at the Teamsters Hall and rallied the faithful. A group of three students tried to lead the crowd in cheers for Jay. But most of the crowd included the elder loyal party members. Bobbie Lurie. Billie Babb. The Hosmers. The Carmichaels. Nixon lamented that most of the surrounding states have Democratic Governors -- Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Iowa . . . why not Missouri, he asked?
