Mark McCloskey could be headed to the Senate – if the voters of Missouri will have him.
He just made the announcement on Tucker Carlson tonight, and released his first campaign ad. McCloskey joins the race for retiring Senator Roy Blunt’s old seat as the only outsider in a field of politicians.
“Never Back Down. Our Nation is under attack – Big Tech, Big Business, the swamp in D.C., are all working together to destroy our God-given freedom, our culture, and our heritage” the ad begins. ” When was the last time a politician defended you? Defended America? Stood between you and the mob? We need defenders in America. But all we get are dividers. They want us to hate each other. Left vs. Right. Black vs. White. Rich vs. Poor. This is a tactic to destroy us. We are all AMERICANS. We are MISSOURIANS. Our nation, our state, our home is worth defending. Our freedoms are worth protecting. I can promise you one thing. When the mob comes to destroy our home, our state, our nation – I will defend it. I will Never Back Down.”
McCloskey was born and raised in the St. Louis Missouri suburb of Webster Groves and is life-long Republican. He attended St. Louis Country Day School where he was Captain of the wresting team and President of the Student Council. He graduated magna cum laude from Southern Methodist University with degrees in Psychology, Sociology and Criminal Justice. He went on to receive his law degree from SMU and has spent the last 36 years representing the rights of his fellow citizens.
Mark and his wife Patricia, whom he has been married to for 36 years, were made famous overnight when photographs of them defending their home against Black Lives Matter rioters went viral. Soros-backed St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner then attempted to prosecute the two, but she was dismissed from part of the McCloskey case because she sent out campaign fundraising emails touting her prosecution of them. Missouri’s governor later said he’d pardon the McCloskeys if they were convicted of gun charges.
