Americans for Prosperity Missouri has put its muscle behind an ad campaign in support of a right-to-work law in the state.
The spot’s tagline: “Right to Work is right for Missouri.”
The ad calls for viewers to call an 800 number to tell their lawmakers to back the anti-union legislation.

The spot makes no mention of Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto this month of a right-to-work bill. Lawmakers are considering an override attempt in September.
“This is about worker freedom and doing the right thing for Missouri,” said AFP Missouri State Director Patrick Werner in a statement. “A clear majority of legislators in both chambers came together and passed legislation that would give Missourians more freedom and more choice in their career path.”
AFP Missouri said the group is spending “six figures” on the ad and that it will air throughout the state.
