Via the Political Fix: Spence’s college degree? Economics, yes, but of the home,
Republican Dave Spence, the plastics guru running for governor, says he "earned a degree in Economics" from the University of Missouri.
That may be true — but it is not entirely accurate.
According to the university, Spence’s degree is not in economics. It is in home economics.
The school says that Spence majored in family economics and management — also called consumer economics —which earned him a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Home Economics in 1981.
(Seriously though, did he think that no one would check?)
