Is Wooten A McNixican?
Former Springfield Republican House member Chuck Wooten endorsed Democrat Jay Nixon for Governor Monday.
"As a veteran and former member of the Missouri House, I'm proud to strongly support Jay Nixon for Governor," Rep. Wooten said. "During his 16 years as Attorney General, Jay has always been tough on crime, and he has always stood up for veterans. I know he’d do the same as Governor. Too often, Washington has let us down when it comes to making sure we have the health care and benefits we deserve. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know Jay Nixon, and I know he’s the right man for the job. He’ll get our state back on the right track," Wooten said in a statement released by the Nixon campaign.
Nixon represented the #137th District and served as Mayor Pro Tem and a member of the City Council.
