Another Missouri governor hopeful made a stop Tuesday in Cape Girardeau. State Sen. Bob Dixon announced Monday at his Springfield home he would be the fifth Republican candidate jumping in the race for governor in 2016. After the initial announcement, he began a tour of the state to discuss his plans for Missouri, stopping in Cape Girardeau the first day. Dixon said he plans to run a “front porch, kitchen table” campaign that will go beyond television and social media. His stop Tuesday was at a home in Cape Girardeau, where a small crowd was gathered. He is against abortion and a supporter of gun rights and traditional marriage — but largely focused on what he hopes to achieve for the state’s future. Dixon said he promotes unity across the state, combined with sensible conservative solutions, so that we can move the state forward and really bring real jobs, real economic progress back to our hometowns. Other Republicans hoping to become Missouri’s next governor include former Missouri House speaker and U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway, Lt. Gov. and Cape Girardeau native Peter Kinder, former state representative Randy Asbury and state Sen. Mike Parson, who also has made campaign stops in Cape Girardeau. Nixon’s term limits prevent him from seeking re-election, although Missouri attorney general and fellow Democrat Chris Koster has expressed interest in succeeding him.
