Austin Petersen has picked up a key endorsement from the Republican Liberty Caucus in his race against Claire McCaskill for the US Senate in Missouri. The former Libertarian Presidential Candidate and Republican outsider has been campaigning against the Democrat since July and the endorsement is a major signal of Petersen’s large ties to the liberty movement.
RLC National Chair Matt Nye, called Petersen “the breath of fresh air Missourians need,” and pointed to Petersen’s consistent advocation for less government and expanded liberty in the lives of American and Missouri citizens.
“Austin brings some much-needed common sense and has both the knowledge and the skills to effectively articulate the liberty message,” Nye said. “We don’t need another career politician in D.C., we need bold reform and leaders unashamed of consistently fighting for the principles of limited government, free markets, and individual liberty; Austin is that leader and we’re proud to stand behind his candidacy.”
Petersen continues to campaign across the state of Missouri trying to win over the hearts and minds of an entrenched establishment that is rooted in the status quo.
