McCaskill for Missouri Statement on Josh Hawley’s Refusal to Stand Up for Missouri Farmers and Ranchers

MISSOURI — McCaskill for Missouri Communications Director Meira Bernstein released the following statement on Josh Hawley’s refusal to stand up for Missouri farmers and ranchers, who are speaking out about the dangerous consequences of the President’s recently announced tariffs:

“Missouri farmers and ranchers have been crystal clear that these tariffs will hurt them. That’s why Claire joined her Republican colleagues in opposing the tariffs, while still supporting efforts that would hold China accountable. Josh Hawley, however, endorsed the tariffs despite opposition from Missouri farmers and ranchers. Hawley’s support for the tariffs tells you everything you need to know about this race: Claire McCaskill will always put Missourians first. Josh Hawley will not.”
