   Missouri State Fair officials are apologizing after a clown wearing a President Barack Obama mask appeared at a State Fair rodeo this weekend and the announcer asked spectators if they wanted to see "Obama run down by a bull."

   Officials said the performance Saturday in Sedalia was "inappropriate" and "does not reflect the opinions or standards" of the fair, but it's unclear if the performers involved will face any consequences.  

   Governor Jay Nixon, Lt. Governor Peter Kinder, and U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill also weighed in with harsh criticism of the performance.

   Kinder tweeted Sunday that it was "disrespectful" to the president and that Missourians are "better than this."

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Missouri Governor Jay Nixon knows where the political land mines are in Wisconsin.

The most dangerous one he has to dodge will participating in a National Governors Association meeting in Milwaukee? Having his picture taken with a Miller beer.

Nixon joked Saturday about how poorly that would go over with voters back home in Missouri, home of Miller's rival Anheuser-Busch. Miller is based on Milwaukee.

Walker joked to Nixon that if he's caught with a Miller beer he could face a recall election. Walker became the first governor in U.S. history to defeat a recall last year.

His recall was spurred not by beer choice but anger over his law effectively ending collective bargaining rights for public workers.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has frozen $400 million of spending for education, capital improvements and state services because of concerns that legislators could override his veto of an income tax bill.

 

   Nixon announced the spending restrictions Friday while signing a nearly $25 billion operating budget for the 2014 fiscal year that starts next Monday.

 

   Earlier this month, the Democratic governor vetoed a Republican-backed bill that would have phased in a tax deduction for business income over the next five years. That bill also would have gradually reduced the income tax rate for individuals and corporations over the next decade.

 

   Lawmakers would need a two-thirds majority vote in both chambers to override Nixon's veto during a September session.

 

   Nixon says the bill could cost Missouri hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue.
