Democratic Senate Hopeful In Missouri Mocks Opponent Who Pointed Gun At BLM Protesters
Democrat Lucas Kunce, who is running for a vacant Senate seat in Missouri, posted a campaign ad on Wednesday mocking one of his opponents, Republican Mark McCloskey, who sparked national outrage last summer when he and his wife were guns on Black Lives Matter protesters outside their St. Louis mansion.
In the video, Kunce cocks a gun, appears to be aiming at something and then says, “You know what? Forget it. I don't have to do that ... Stunts like that are for the clowns on the other side, like this 'Mansion Man' Mark McCloskey. "
Kunce - a former Marine who announced his candidacy in March - then urges his opponent to apologize to the people he has "threatened with lethal violence". He offers McCloskey a "U.S. Navy-guided weapons training class ”in return.
McCloskey and his wife, who yelled at racial justice protesters outside their home in June 2020 and waved their guns, were charged with the illegal use of guns last year. They are due to be brought to justice this year.
McCloskey spoke at the 2020 Republican National Convention and earned praise from then-President Donald Trump. Last month he announced his candidacy for the Senate.
Kunce and McCloskey are among a number of candidates running for the seat vacated by Senator Roy Blunt (R), who has announced he will not seek another term.
Democrat Scott Sifton, a Missouri State Senator from 2013 through earlier this year, is also running for Blunt's seat, as is Republican Eric Greitens, a former Missouri governor who resigned on an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct, and Eric Schmitt, the Public Prosecutor General.
Kunce is running as a progressive candidate who will not accept PAC money from corporations and call for universal health coverage, legalize marijuana and break corporate monopolies.
