St. Louis couple that pointed guns at protesters to speak at Oklahoma County GOP fundraiser
An Oklahoma County GOP fundraiser this Friday will feature a St. Louis couple that gained attention after brandishing guns at protesters walking down their private street this summer.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey will talk during a fundraiser hosted by the Oklahoma County Republican Party on Friday night at the Higher Plain Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.
The event is titled "Mark and Patricia McCloskey, persecuted by the left, are coming to OKC!"
Earlier this month, the McCloskeys pleaded not guilty to two felony charges of unlawful use of a weapon and tampering with evidence after being indicted by a Missouri grand jury, according to NPR.
After the incident with protesters in June, the McCloskeys have become notable names within the Republican Party nationally. The pair spoke at the Republican National Convention earlier this year.
Several Republicans running for Oklahoma County offices are scheduled to attend, but all say they are unable to make appearances because of separate campaign events.
“Every American needs to hear their riveting and terrifying ordeal,” the event description reads.
