A Republican candidate for governor in Missouri has found a way to fire up the voters, rolling out the big guns against politics as usual.
In a television ad for his gubernatorial campaign, Eric Greitens is portrayed as a “conservative warrior” fighting against the Obama administration’s attempt to steal another Missouri election.
A former Navy SEAL, Greitens calls himself a “political outsider” willing to take on the “failed political class.”
“We had the Democrat Governors Association and the Obama political machine come into a Republican primary and try to rig the election by spending $1 million against me,” Greitens said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”
The 42 year-old Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient is facing off against Democrat Chris Koster, Missouri’s attorney general.
Greitens said the voters of his state are tired of politics as usual, and his background as an entrepreneur and former SEAL delivers just what they want.
Greitens, who founded “The Mission Continues,” a nonprofit organization for veterans, was listed as one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013 and was named one of the world’s 50 greatest leaders by Fortune Magazine in 2014.
