Mark McCloskey Considering Senate Run

'It seems as if Democrats no longer view the government’s job as protecting honest citizens from criminals, but rather protecting criminals from honest citizens...'

Mark McCloskey, the St. Louis lawyer who rose to national prominence last summer after confronting Black Lives Matter rioters outside his home, said he is considering running for Senate.

“I can confirm that it’s a consideration, yes,” McCloskey told Politico this week when asked if he’s looking at running for Missouri’s open Senate seat to replace retiring GOP Sen. Roy Blunt.

McCloskey and his wife, Patricia, added that he doesn’t have a timeline for when he’ll make the decision. But this past weekend, he spoke at a Jackson County GOP dinner, which former Gov. Eric Greitens and state Attorney General Eric Schmitt also attended after announcing their candidacies.

The couple has become well-known in Republican circles, even winning the support of former president Donald Trump, who said it was “disgraceful” that they had been charged for brandishing firearms at the protesters who were threatening their property.

They spoke at last year’s Republican National Convention and blasted the leftists who would try to take away their “God-given right” to defend themselves.

“Whether it’s defunding the police, ending cash bail so criminals can be released back out on the streets the same day to riot again, or encouraging anarchy on our streets, it seems as if Democrats no longer view the government’s job as protecting honest citizens from criminals, but rather protecting criminals from honest citizens,” Mark McCloskey said during his RNC speech.

“Not a single person in the out-of-control mob you saw at our house was charged with a crime,” he continued. “But you know who was? We were. They’ve actually charged us with a felony for daring to defend our home.”

Other Missouri Republicans considering a run for the seat include Reps. Jason Smith and Billy Long, as well as former state Sen. Scott Sifton and attorney Lucas Kunce.
