Missouri Gov. Grietens and Republican State Senator Schaaf locked in opposition

Missouri Republican Governor Eric Greitens' non-profit organization is running digital ads attacking St. Joseph Republican State Senator Rob Schaaf because Schaaf is criticizing Greitens' use of campaign donations routed through his non-profit, saying that use conceals the money's source.

Greitens' ads urge people to call Schaaf and tell him to stop siding with liberals. Schaaf also questions Greitens' ties to a managed care company called Centene.

The attack ads against Schaaf are funded by a non-profit organization called A New Missouri Inc., which was founded by some of Governor Greitens' campaign staff.
