GREAT NEWS! Trump Defender and Former Governor Eric Greitens Announces His Run for US Senate in Missouri

On March 8, longtime US Senator from Missouri Roy Blunt announced he will not be seeking reelection in 2022.

President Donald Trump’s allies immediately coalesced around former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, urging him to run for the open senate seat.

Eric Greitens has appeared on Missouri radio, Newsmax, Steve Bannon’s War Room, and Seb Gorka’s radio show in the last 48 hours, and said that he is motivated by the tremendous support from grassroots voters across the state of Missouri.

He said voters will support candidates who are “willing to stand up, especially stand up against the lunacy that we’re seeing out of the left.”

Eric Greitens has emerged as one of the most prominent defenders of the President over the last several months.

Running in a Republican primary in the coming election cycle requires candidates to have substantial Trump bonafides, and establishment politicians are realizing the political landscape continues to change under President Trump. President Trump won Missouri by 57% in 2020 and 56% in 2016.
