Former anti-Trump Libertarian, Austin Petersen, hopes to clinch GOP victory for Senate in Missouri

Austin Petersen is running for Senate in Missouri and shared his thoughts about his run with “The Conservative Cartel” over the weekend. Petersen is formerly known for his anti-Trump, Libertarian stance, however, he now backs President Trump and hopes to clinch the nomination for the GOP come 2018.

Why the sudden change?

When Petersen sought advice from his base as to what ticket he should run on, 98 percent agreed that he should run on a Republican ticket in order beat Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

Elections for the United States Senate take place Tuesday, November 6, 2018, for six-year terms.
