How bout that Missouri Gov

He jumped right on the denial pretty fast. Not southern. But are they not quite similar to southerners in some ways?  Perhaps I'm absurdly wrong about that. Wouldn't be the first time.

At any rate I was trying to determine if he was a conservative without having to ask him. But later he kind of proved that he is at least somewhat to the right. 

I wish this guv thing would have come up while he was here. We could have had a good discussion. Then we could have discussed Sam Brownback. Perhaps finally coming to a conclusion on whether it's best to live in MO or better to live in KS.

There are profs at MU who vehemently insist that they are southern and hate Jim Lanes red legs.  Border Wars shirt.  I betcha' ya' coulda' had a good discussioin with them profs what thinks Missouri is southern.

If'n he was conservative, he ain't backwards.  It's whut's happening now.  Aintcha' heard?  MAGA has gripped the nation.

Sure. Unfortunate stereotype.
