According to Austin Petersen’s campaign website, Austin has landed his first major endorsement for his U.S. Senate campaign.
Former Congressman Bob Barr. Yes, you might remember him as the Libertarian Party’s nominee for President in the 2008 election, or as a former Republican Congressman.
A huge endorsement for an outsider seeking to win Missouri’s Senate seat. If Austin continues to land high profiled endorsement, there’s no doubt Austin can win the Republican primary and possibly unseat Claire McCaskill in 2018.
Below is Bob Barr’s endorsement statement:
Austin Petersen is a tireless champion of individual liberty and freedom. Missouri would be well-served to send him to Washington so he can support and strengthen the efforts of Senators like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee. I enthusiastically endorse Austin as someone who will uphold his oath of office to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
