Josh Hawley is still facing questions about whether he’s “mailing it in,” and he doesn’t have a very good answer. This morning, Fox News’ Bill Hemmer asked Hawley about reports that he has not been working hard enough in his campaign for Senate. Instead of addressing the concerns — which were raised by Missouri Republicans — Hawley called the report “fake D.C. news.”
Perhaps Hawley’s retort would carry a little more weight if his campaign wasn’t being propped up by elite D.C. Republicans. On the heels of yet another lackluster fundraising quarter, Hawley has benefitted from three visits from the President and Vice President in the past two weeks alone. Tomorrow, he will be back in Washington D.C. for yet another set of elite fundraisers with Republican Senate leadership.
“There is apparently no limit to what Josh Hawley will say to serve his own personal self-interest. Yet again, Hawley is telling Missourians one thing and then turning right around to do the exact opposite,” said Missouri Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Brooke Goren. “Talk about hypocrisy.”
