Yesterday on KMOX’s Total Information AM, Charlie Brennan observed that Senator Claire McCaskill is “very real” while he “can’t quite say the same thing about Josh Hawley. He seems a little fabricated.” St. Louis conservative radio host Mark Reardon agreed, adding that Hawley has a problem with many Trump voters who “don’t like [Hawley’s] ladder-climbing at all.”
CHARLIE BRENNAN: …I’m not too surprised that it’s tight. I think that [Claire] runs a difficult battle because it’s kind of Trump territory. But she also is appealing in many ways. She seems to be very real and I can’t quite say the same thing about Josh Hawley. He seems a little fabricated. He just got into office 2 years ago, running that he wasn’t going to seek higher office and then, as soon as he got in, he changed his mind…[…]
MARK REARDON: Well, I like Claire. I genuinely like her personally. We bond on black and gold. We disagree on a lot of issues. I don’t disagree with Charlie when – I think Hawley’s a little bit too, maybe a little bit too scripted at times. I think the issue for him – and this is serious – there are people who voted for Donald Trump – I’ve heard from many of them, by no means is this scientific – they don’t like the ladder-climbing at all. They think that that’s going back on a promise. So that’s going to be an issue for him.
