The Kansas City business community and Democrats across the area received the sad news over the weekend that our friend James B. Nutter had died after 89 remarkable years of service and success. Our own Claire McCaskill was one of the first people to publicly announce Nutter’s death. In a Twitter post Friday, McCaskill said Nutter was one of a kind.

“I’m incredibly sad,” McCaskill tweeted. “My dear friend James Nutter has passed away. There will never be another one like him. Kind, generous, loyal, very big heart.”
