Missouri Governor Nominee Has Military Background

The Virginian-Pilot reports that “Eric Greitens introduced himself to Missouri voters earlier this year with an attention-grabbing TV ad in which he fires a military-style assault rifle into a seemingly empty field, causing a fiery explosion of a gasoline bomb. He pledged in the ad to ‘take aim at politics as usual.'”  

“On Tuesday night, when he beat a crowded field for the Republican nomination for governor, he again touted his aim to ‘clean up Jefferson City’ by banning gifts from lobbyists, closing the revolving door between legislators and lobbyists and backing term limits for all statewide elected offices.”  

“Greitens already has a resume that’s remarkable: Navy SEAL officer, Rhodes scholar, White House fellow, boxer and martial arts expert, humanitarian to homeless children and war refugees, best-selling author and founder of a nonprofit that helps that military veterans find jobs.”
