On the Jaco Report, Missouri’s governor’s race in 2012 was expected to be a political grudge match between two men who really don’t like each other: Democratic incumbent Governor Jay Nixon and Republican Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder. But after some political turbulence, Kinder has decided to run for Lt. Governor again, not governor. Republicans were left searching for someone to oppose Nixon.

Enter Dave Spence. Spence is a millionaire St. Louis businessman who's run a successful set of companies. He has never held elected office. And he thinks both of those things are big positives. Charles talks to Spence in his first in-depth TV interview about why he wants to be governor.
