One reason Kander was so successful, said Kunce deputy campaign manager Connor Lounsbury, is that he was “unafraid to stand up to corruption,” much like state auditor Nicole Galloway’s successful 2018 campaign. “Luckily, that’s Lucas’s work,” he added. “Literally what he does.”

“…Mr. Kunce has a unique presence among Democrats in the race that could give him an advantage. ‘He probably offers one of the better chances the Democrats have in terms of being able to compete statewide,’ the professor said. ‘Given his background and his ties to the state, he may be able to pull it off.'”
“Lucas Kunce Rails Against Big Tech, China and America’s Elites. Oh, and he’s a Democrat.”
“We aren’t just supporting Lucas because he is a veteran. We are supporting him because he is a person of honor and integrity, proven many times over in acts of thankless service both in and out of uniform. He will be a warrior for working people in Missouri.”
“Aiding and abetting a foreign enemy is treason. So when a bunch of corporate-backed Missouri politicians passed a bill that greenlit a Chinese invasion of Missouri farmland, we should call it what it is.”
“I’m proud to have earned the support of VoteVets and its 1.5 million-member network of supporters dedicated to electing those who’ve served,” Kunce told The Missouri Times.
