Columbia, MO (AP) The University of Missouri wants Republican gubernatorial candidate Catherine Hanaway to remove a large image of its logo from her campaign vehicle.
Hanaway is preparing to start a two-week state tour in her bid to be the state’s next governor. She’s one of five Republicans seeking the party’s 2016 nomination for governor.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Hanaway tweeted a photo of the vehicle Monday showing the large, trademarked Missouri tiger logo on the vehicle. Hanaway also referred to the RV as “Tiger One” in a news release.
University spokeswoman Mary Jo Banken says the university doesn’t approve of political candidates using the logo and will ask Hanaway to stop using the logo.
Nick Maddux, Hanaway’s campaign manager, says the RV will be rewrapped to conceal the image.
