State Sen Bob Dix­on (R) high­lighted his long polit­ic­al ca­reer in a pro­file in the Neo­sho Daily News.

Dix­on: “I was part of the first Re­pub­lic­an ma­jor­ity in 50 years in the state. … Then I was en­cour­aged to seek the sen­ate seat in Spring­field, and so I served rep­res­ent­ing the 30th Dis­trict now in the Mis­souri Sen­ate. I have al­ways tried to listen to folks. I have a core set of val­ues, what I call sens­ible con­ser­vat­ive solu­tions that are the an­swers to the is­sues that face us.”

Dix­on also talked about want­ing to re­move gov­ern­ment reg­u­la­tions and want­ing to bet­ter pre­pare stu­dents. (Neo­sho Daily News)

BIG FAN OF THE FIRST AMEND­MENT. Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R) is­sued a state­ment con­demning some of the ac­tions of Mizzou pro­test­ers, who were filmed block­ing a stu­dent pho­to­graph­er.

Kinder: “Ac­tions on Monday by Uni­versity fac­ulty and staff to in­fringe on stu­dents’ First Amend­ment rights dir­ectly con­tra­dict what is taught at our uni­versit­ies. This in­cid­ent must be ex­amined, and if found ne­ces­sary, dis­cip­lined.” (Columbia Mis­souri­an)
