Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is calling for a moratorium with neighboring Kansas on efforts to lure companies across the border.
In a speech to the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, Nixon said economic incentives should be used to attract new businesses to the area rather than simply relocating ones already there. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has suggested a similar pact, though no formal agreement has been reached.
St. Charles will host numerous prominent conservatives on Saturday, as part of CPAC St. Louis. CPAC is an event for members of the GOP to rally and speak to their base -- and, of course, to posture for presidential and other political aspirations.
2012 Presidential hopefuls Rick Santorum and Rick Perry will be speaking, as will Kansas Governor Sam Brownback.
Speaking with St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh, Brownback said a GOP candidate that speaks to true conservatives is more likely to win in 2016.
