The State Republican Party is expressing its outrage over a billboard campaign Missouri Democrats are trying to launch. The ads, to be placed in predominantly Africa-American areas of St. Louis and Kansas City, feature he face of a black man next to the slogan, “Missouri Republicans Have A Plan. You Are Not Part Of It.” Paul Sloca with the Missouri Republicans says the Democrats’ playing of the race card is not acceptable. He calls it disgusting. Jim Gardner with the State Democratic Party rejects the suggestion that race baiting is going on. He concedes, however, that it makes sense – as a marketing strategy – to place certain ads in certain communities to appeal to people living in those communities. Viacom, which owns the billboards, has so far refused to put up the ads, saying they are “deceptive.”
