The latest Republican to join Missouri’s U.S. Senate race says he is taking a stand to defend GOP values. Mark McCloskey and his wife, Patricia, made national headlines for waving a rifle at protesters walking along a private street in front of their home last summer. McCloskey has released a social media video to gain support.
Other Republicans in the race include Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and former Governor Eric Greitens. Democrat Lucas Kunce of Jefferson City is also running.
