Tax-cut opponents in Missouri House draw little primary opposition

Missouri House Republicans were told they could get a well-funded party primary opponent in this year’s election for voting to sustain a gubernatorial veto of tax-cut legislation. Despite those threats, 15 Republicans voted to sustain Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto last year. Yet as candidate filing closed this past week, just four of that group drew August primary opponents – and it’s not definitively clear that their tax cut vote had anything to do with that.
