LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. - Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt released the following statement in response to St. Louis County Executive Sam Page's announcement easing COVID-19 restrictions: “To ensure that personal, economic, and religious freedoms are preserved in St. Louis County, the Attorney General’s Office sent a letter to St. Louis County on April 20th expressing our concerns with the Safer at Home order and its restrictions on St. Louis County residents.

Mark McCloskey is not a politician. That's evident from the first moment you meet him. He does not surround himself with the usual cadre of handlers, the typical army of individuals whose job it is to separate self important candidates from all the little people. Instead, Mark comes up, shakes your hand, personally introduces himself, and talks easily about everyday issues, his real life Missouri values, concerns that trouble all patriots, and if you ask, his accomplishments as a litigator. He immediately makes you feel you're engaged in conversation with a real person, not someone with practiced Politi-Speak responses. Mark knows how he feels on issues, and he's comfortable sharing his genuine opinions. Handlers not needed.
Until 2020, Mark's and wife Patty's lives had been spent in the private sector - that place where most of us also live. As life long Republicans and self employed attorneys, Mark and Patty dealt with everyday issues like making payroll, paying taxes, fighting government regulation, and all the rest of the day to day challenges that confront business owners across the USA. Working together, the McCloskeys were enjoying the American dream even though they live in one of the most dangerous cities in the entire country....St. Louis.
Life changed for Mark and Patty on June 28, 2020 when an angry mob swept through their neighborhood in St. Louis. Yes, he's "that" Mark McCloskey. Their experience and the injustice they lived through afterwards at the hands of a corrupt, Soros funded St. Louis prosecutor, led to a McCloskey family decision to put their comfortable lifestyle on hold. What happened to them, and the national turmoil that led similar violence in Democrat cities across the United States, could not continue to go unanswered. It was time to take a stand.
They first became involved in the Donald Trump Bus Tour across the US, speaking on behalf of the president they admired. In 2021, they took a further step when Mark announced he would run for the Senate seat of retiring Senator Roy Blunt. Mark and Patty have since traveled weekly to towns and cities throughout Missouri, talking about their experience on June 28th, and discussing issues Mark would like the chance to address: big tech monopoly and its chilling effect on speech, China's corruption and planned dominance, second amendment rights, government overreach, and more.
