Missouri Lt. Governor candidate begins multi-million robo-call campaign

A candidate for Missouri

Governor is starting a major campaign push on Saturday.

Republican candidate Mike Carter will begin the first part of his several million robo-call campaign on June 30



In a statement, Carter said that his intent is to â??spread more of the New-Republican Ron-Paul message and at the same time capitalize on the similarities of my opponents' names to mine on an extremely down-ballot race.â??

Carter is no stranger to robo-calls, as he has made several in the past decade. In 2008, he claims he attained just under 17% of the statewide primary vote for

Governor, using robo-calls alone. He says he plans to honor his own political no-call list from back then.

Carter is a former judge, real estate attorney, Senior Lecturer for the University of Missouri, Counsel for Missouri Corporations, and Director at the St. Louis Board of REALTORS.
