Commanding Win for Eric Schmitt in Debate as He Continues to Fight and Win to Take Our Country Back from Radical Left
ST. CHARLES, MO – In a commanding win in today’s debate, Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Eric Schmitt showed why he is the best candidate to fight and win to take our country back from the radical Left and restore President Trump’s America First agenda.
“Missourians want a fighter to push back against Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and their radical liberal agenda,” said Eric Schmitt, Missouri Attorney General and candidate for the U.S. Senate. “While the D.C. establishment has been content with these consequences, or waiting around, hoping things might change after the next election, as Missouri’s Attorney General I have been taking action – taking a blowtorch to this radical agenda – fighting and winning.”
As Missouri’s Attorney General, Eric Schmitt continues to take a blowtorch to the radical agenda pushed by Joe Biden and leftists at all levels of government. He is holding Joe Biden accountable for his mess at the Southern Border, which is flooding our country with life-destroying drugs and human traffickers.
Eric Schmitt has been fighting and winning against the COVID tyrants who want more power and control with their forced lockdowns, forced vaccine mandates and forced masking of schoolchildren. He is Missouri’s law-and-order attorney general, supporting law enforcement and more funding for police.
Eric Schmitt said President Trump fought for the forgotten families – the blue-collar families – who work hard, play by the rules and cherish their God-given freedoms.
“These are the families I will never forget. They are the families I am fighting and winning for now as your Attorney General – and the families I want to continue fighting and winning for if the people give me the honor of representing them in the United State Senate,” Schmitt said.

Schmitt Statement On US Supreme Court Justice Breyer’s Retirement
ST. LOUIS, MO – Eric Schmitt, Missouri Attorney General and candidate for the United States Senate, issued the following statement on news of US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement.
“As Attorney General, I’ve taken a blowtorch to the Biden Administration’s radical agenda to overturn President Trump’s accomplishments in the courts. With the announcement of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement, it is imperative that this vacancy isn’t filled with a liberal activist judge. His retirement makes clear we must retake the Senate in November.
“President Trump rebuilt our judiciary by nominating individuals who adhered to the Constitution, respected the rule of law and who, above all, love America. The Left’s all-out assault on freedom and liberty in their obsession to fundamentally transform the country hangs in balance of the court.
“As Senator, I will oppose all woke activist nominees who actively seek to undermine President Trump’s America First accomplishments from the bench and disrespect the rule of law.”
Eric Schmitt on Vaccine Mandates: Biden ‘doesn’t respect the rule of law’
Joins ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ to discuss SCOTUS decision on vaccine mandate, the Biden Administration’s lawlessness, and what’s at stake in the Missouri Senate Race
ST. LOUIS, MO – Missouri Attorney General and US Senate candidate Eric Schmitt this week joined Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ to discuss last week’s historic win at the Supreme Court against the private employer federal vaccine mandate, how the fight continues against government overreach, and what’s at stake in the 2022 Missouri Senate race. Read highlights of AG’s Schmitt’s interview below.
On the win against vaccine mandates for hardworking Americans at the Supreme Court, AG Schmitt said:
“It is a big win. It’s a big win for workers. It’s big win for the Constitution. It’s a big win for rule of law and individual freedom. People should be able to make these decisions themselves without being fired. OSHA was created to make sure forklifts beep when they back up, not force the medical procedure on eighty plus million Americans. That’s a big win. I also think it stands for a much larger proposition that these agencies — we cannot let them run wild here. You can’t try to fit an elephant and a mouse hole as one of the justices said. We can’t cede this much authority to the federal government. America has been the freest country in the history of the world. We believe in individual rights. We believe that when we spread out the power among the branches, we protect individual freedom. For those reasons, I think it’s a big win last week in the courts.”
On the Biden Administration’s lawlessness, AG Schmitt said:
“It should come as no surprise, which is why AG’s like me and others across the country, have fought so hard to protect people’s individual rights from a president that first wants to bulldoze the separation of powers and doesn’t respect the rule of law. By the way, this is the same administration that sicking the FBI on parents who are showing up to school board meetings in this country. This is about power and control, it always has been. It’s not about data or science, it’s about power and control, command and control. The left wants to make sure that they have an administrative state that issues these edicts and people have to follow. But thankfully, we live in the country where the rule of law still matters. A system of federalism where the states created the federal government, to be a government of limited powers. We’re going to continue to fight back and push back against this president who doesn’t respect the rule of law.“
On what’s at stake in the 2022 Missouri Senate race, AG Schmitt said:
“Look, it’s a 50/50 Senate — there’s a lot at stake here. I think, the future of the Senate, if we’re going to have a majority, runs right through the Show Me State. You look and see what’s happening in Washington D.C. right now, Maria. You’ve got the Democrats, who control all the levers of power, who want to federalize our elections, add states to the union, pack the Supreme Court – we need proven conservative fighters that are going to go up there and stand for the rule of law. There’s a couple candidates in the race, quite frankly, that would take it from a top ten to a top five race. We cannot lose the seat. We need folks who are going to fight. That’s been my record – I’ve stood by President Trump and the America First agenda. I’ve taken a blowtorch to the Biden agenda and we are winning. We need reinforcements right now in Washington D.C. to save America. I’m very grateful for the support. We’ve gotten record fundraising support from Missourians. We are going to continue to fight back, and again, take that same fighting spirit to the United States Senate.”

Everyone who knows Dana knows she never backs down from a fight, and I am honored to have her standing with me in my campaign for the United States Senate.”

Eric Schmitt is the proven leader we need to stand against Washington’s endless cradle-to-grave expansion of the federal government and rally support for a better alternative — one that empowers people, not politicians. We are excited to throw the full weight of our grassroots army behind Eric Schmitt now through Election Day.”

Eric Schmitt has my full support in his campaign for U.S. Senate and I encourage Missourians to send him there to represent law and order and conservative values.”
As Missouri’s Attorney General, Eric Schmitt worked closely with Missouri’s U.S. Attorneys and the U.S. Department of Justice on anti-crime initiatives including Operation Legend, which ushered in a surge of federal agents to the state to help stop violent crime.
