Apparently there are attack ads already running in the republican gubernatorial primary. I’m shocked I tell you, shocked.

John Brunner’s (r) gubernatorial campaign released the following statement today:

News from the Trail
Statement on “LG PAC” Commercial
June 04, 2016

“It’s no surprise that John Brunner is being targeted by special interests with flat-out lies. John is the only candidate who can’t be bought and who is not looking to start, extend or jump-start a political career. The special interests have good reason to fear John Brunner as Missouri’s next governor, because John will stand up for ‘We the people’ to take our government back from the special interests, and get Missouri back on the right track.”

-Campaign spokesman Mike Hafner
