ST. LOUIS – Former State Sen. Bob Onder has launched a run for a Missouri U.S. Congress seat.

Onder announced his candidacy for the 3rd Congressional District of Missouri in the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday.

The seat represents Jefferson City and some parts of the St. Louis metro. Blaine Luetkemeyer currently holds the seat and plans to retire at the end of 2024.

Onder, who describes himself as “a physician and battle-tested conservative warrior,” represented St. Charles County during his term as a Missouri state senator.

“Washington DC has never been more broken than it is right now.  Illegal immigrants are streaming across our border without consequence, fentanyl from Mexican cartels is poisoning our citizens, and Joe Biden is aiding and abetting the invasion.  I am running to make Washington listen.” said Onder.

According to a news release announcing his candidacy, Onder wants politicians in Washington DC to address immigration, drug trafficking, and inflation, among other issues.

Onder says he has earned top ratings or endorsements from several groups, including the American Conservative Union, Missouri Right to Life and the NRA. He also served as a delegate for Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention in 2016, and as an alternate delegate in 2020. He also served as a surrogate for Trump at the 2024 Iowa Caucuses.
