He talked about what is most important to him.

"The Republic, and the role of the citizen in the Republic, and the idea that if the people are mad enough, and angry enough, there's nothing the establishment or the insiders can do. When the people are ready, we'll speak," he said.

He plans to announce his plans on the front steps of the Ellisville Courthouse on Thursday at 12.
