If you've seen the #GrowMO ads on your TV recently in the State Of Missouri (and surrounding states that have a portion of Missouri in their media markets in them), then you'll be not surprised to learn that Grow Missouri (#GrowMO) is just another right-wing front group with VERY close ties to that state's Club For Growth and Americans For Prosperity chapters and the Show Me State's version of the Koch Brothers, Rex Sinquefield.
Missourians could soon see television ads urging them to support a tax cut measure that Gov. Jay Nixon has vetoed.
Two of the state's business groups — the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Associated Industries of Missouri — announced today that they will start airing commercials throughout the state on Monday, asking people to reach out to their lawmakers and push for an override of Nixon’s veto.
The two 30-second spots direct viewers to GrowMissouri.com if they want more information on the tax bill.
Grow Missouri is a political action committee created earlier this week. The PAC reported today that it had received $1.3 million from political mega-donor Rex Sinquefield of St. Louis.
In a 10-part veto message last month, Nixon called the tax cut legislation an “ill-conceived, fiscally irresponsible experiment that would inject far-reaching uncertainty into our economy, undermine our state’s fiscal health and jeopardize basic funding for education and vital public services.”
Here's a couple of ads by Grow Missouri that are in circulation on TV:
