Today, Josh Hawley's top DC one backer Mitch McConnell and his Super PAC poured even more money into last minute, false attacks against Senator Claire McCaskill in hopes of boosting Hawley's campaign. McConnell is desperate for Hawley to be elected because he knows that while Claire will always put Missouri first, Hawley will be always be a rubber stamp on McConnell's partisan agenda.
After months of campaigning on widely debunked falsehoods, Josh Hawley is now looking straight into the camera and lying to Missourians again about what kind of voice he would be in the Senate. The truth is, Hawley is just another self-serving, ladder-climbing politician who will always put himself and his political allies ahead of hardworking Missouri families.
FACT CHECK: DC-Based Outside Group Pushes Same Desperate Lies about Claire and Her Family that Have Been Debunked Time and Again
Today, the Washington DC-based outside group Club For Growth launched a new TV ad pushing the same desperate lies about Claire McCaskill and her family that have been debunked by independent fact checkers time and again. While Josh Hawley and his DC-backers are repeating the same old attacks that have been proven false, Claire is focused on talking to Missourians about her bipartisan work in the Senate to deliver results for their families.
Less than a year after he was sworn in as Attorney General on a commitment not to be another ladder climbing politician, Josh Hawley broke his promise by announcing his bid for U.S. Senate. Recent exposes by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Kansas City Star, and others have shown that Hawley has failed to do the job he was elected to do -- let alone demonstrate that he deserves a promotion.
Josh Hawley, Mitch McConnell's "number one recruit," has never once broken with his party declining to identify a single issue on which he disagrees with the current administration -- even as the administration's trade war has cost hundreds of Missouri workers their jobs. Meanwhile, Senator Claire McCaskill has consistently stood up to her party when it was right for Missouri.
