A number of candidates have already announced their campaign to fill the soon-to-be-open Missouri Senate seat after Roy Blunt announced he wouldn’t run for re-election. The latest to enter the race is another Trump supporter, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.

Fox News reports:

“Washington, D.C., needs more fighters, needs more reinforcements to save America. So after a lot of reflection, support from folks back home, and on behalf of the people of the great state of Missouri, I’m announcing my candidacy for the United States Senate,” Schmitt said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.”

Schmitt touted that “as attorney general, I’ve spent my time defending President Trump and the America First agenda and all the prosperity that came with that – secure borders, energy independence, more opportunities for more Americans. And now, I’m spending my time pushing back against Joe Biden as he tries to dismantle that in, really, a betrayal of the American worker.”

And he warned that “increasingly, it feels like our culture and our country is slipping away, and all the levers of power in Washington, D.C., are tilted towards the Democrats.”

Schmitt is the second Republican to launch a campaign to try and succeed Blunt, who has served nearly a quarter-century in Congress.

Earlier this week, former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens also announced his campaign for U.S. Senate.
