FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2009, file photo, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon speaks at the Ford's Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Mo. During his administration, Nixon has highlighted business deals that are cumulatively projected to create about 48,000 jobs in exchange for as much as $2 billion of state incentives. As Nixon prepares to leave office Jan. 9, fewer than half of those jobs have materialized so far and the state has paid out less than one-tenth of the potential incentives.
