188. Jay Nixon - miles better than *shudder* Matt Blunt, the previous R gov.
Edited on Sat Apr-16-11 07:46 PM by iris27
And I would argue better than Holden, the Dem before Blunt as well. I'm generally happy with him. He has punted a couple times on more progressive issues, but now that I'm trying to remember the specifics on those, I'm drawing a blank. Will proudly support his re-election, though!

Also, there was an assassination attempt against him in 2010 that surprisingly got almost NO media coverage. I guess just because he was still at the airport at the time? He was scheduled to speak at a KC college, and a student stabbed a dean just outside of the room where Nixon was scheduled to speak, thinking incorrectly that the dean WAS Nixon.
