Jay Nixon | 2016 Election
Jay Nixon  

Potential 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate

Governor of Missouri

Jeremiah Wilson Nixon
Born: February 13th, 1956  (age 58)

Gov. Nixon made history during his 1996 reelection as Attorney General when he received the highest number of votes (1,243,091) in Missouri’s history. This achievement atoned for his dismal performance six years earlier in the senatorial election against Republican John Danforth, where his 36% margin of defeat is the lowest by a Democrat in the state’s history.

Frequently criticized by fellow Democrats for his conservative stances, Gov. Nixon is nonetheless well remembered for his titanic court battle in Nixon v. Shrink Missouri Government PAC, which upheld the federal limits on state campaign contributions.
