Blunt Rochester, 61, is the first person to announce a bid for the Senate seat and began hiring campaign staff earlier this month, POLITICO previously reported.
In an announcement video released Wednesday, Blunt Rochester touts a focus on protecting seniors, the environment, small businesses and women’s reproductive rights. She also touches on her late husband’s death and her experience during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
“People ask me if Jan. 6 was my worst day. It was. But it was also one of my proudest moments. Because we walked back in that House chamber and we completed our work,” Blunt Rochester says in the video.
