WATCH: Mark McCloskey releases video officially announcing run for Missouri Senate

St. Louis attorney Mark McCloskey, who became a viral sensation defending his home from BLM protesters while armed, has released a video officially announcing his run for Missouri Senate.

“When the angry mob came to destroy my house and kill my family, I took a stand against them,” McCloskey says in the video. “Now I’m asking for the privilege to take that stand for all of us.” He went on:

“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. When was the last time a politician defended you? Defended America? Stood between you and the mob?” McCloskey asks.
