"We talked about the possibility of running, we talked about the support, we talked about the idea of Christian leadership and the idea that prayer could be very powerful in something like this," McDaniel said.

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.
