Super PAC bringing bus tour to Missouri
A prominent conservative Super PAC plans to host several events in Missouri over the next few days. The national group - Americans for Prosperity - will bring its bus tour to tailgate parties before the Mizzou football game on Saturday, the Rams game on Sunday and the Cardinals game on Tuesday.
The group says this is a way to reach out to a large audience that’s already there – an audience that isn’t necessarily the political rally type.
“I wouldn’t really say conservative or independent or whatever. We’re just trying to get the message out anyway we can," Patrick Werner, director of Missouri’s division of Americans for Prosperity said. "We’re trying to pick a couple venues where there are already people around who might be interested in seeing what we’re talking about.”
The Americans for Prosperity Super PAC is financed largely by the billionaire Koch brothers. You can find a complete listing of the events here.
