Republican Governor Matt Blunt won't have his name on the ballot for more than two years but his campaign committee has bought airtime on radio stations all over the state for advertisements. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.
The spots began airing this week on commercial radio stations all over the state.
They focus on education spending, the economy and Governor Matt Blunt's push for a 10 percent ethanol requirement in gasoline.
The media consultant to Blunt's campaign is John Thompson.
Democrats have reacted to the ads from Republican Governor Matt Blunt and the fact that they're airing more than two years before he's up for re-election.
Nora Walcott is a consultant and strategist for democratic campaigns and former executive director of the Greene County Democratic Party.
Walcott says she doesn't believe the media are biased. She says there are plenty of examples where the editorial page of Blunt's hometown newspaper, the Springfield News-Leader has agreed with his proposals.
As for the content of the ads, which praise Blunt for turning the state around, Walcott says many people have a different perspective on how Blunt's policies have impacted Missourians.
Democratic Attorney General Jay Nixon is expected to challenge Blunt in 2008.
