Higgins lays out libertarian platform for Missouri [video]
KBIA’s Jessica Reese sat down with Libertarian candidate for governor, Jim Higgins, to find out more about what his plans are for the state if elected. He is running against incumbent Democrat Jay Nixon, and Republican newcomer Dave Spence in the Nov. 6th election.
Higgins discussed what a Libertarian believes, and how that motivates his stance on issues like education funding, the economy, and the state’s infrastructure. He says giving businesses economic incentives will not help job growth and the state’s economy, but instead, says the state should let the fundamentals of market supply and demand naturally sort out this issue.
