Brunner's Business Record Under Scrutiny

October 27, 2011

Once your campaign website dubs you "John the Job Creator," the optics of your own company announcing a round of layoffs are not good.

That's the situation Missouri Republican Senate candidate John Brunner is facing. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Brunner's company, Vi-Jon, commissioned a round of layoffs this week.

Brunner's spokesman told the paper that the layoffs reflect the poor business atmosphere caused by over-regulation and too many taxes.

Not the story Brunner would want to see in the early stages of a campaign in which he's trying to tout his business acumen.
