Last night, former Republican vice presidential nominee and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin held a rally in Kansas City for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tony Monetti. Palin argued that it is Monetti, not Josh Hawley, who is the Republican anti-establishment candidate best equipped to win in November.
While Josh Hawley has been actively trying to ignore his primary opponents, recent comments from local officials show that Hawley’s support among Missouri Republicans may not be as solid as he would like. County leaders have panned Hawley for being “arrogant” and refusing to attend local Party events. As the Jackson County Republican chairman told POLITICO, “It’s as if [Hawley] doesn’t feel like he needs to go out and campaign and that he’s the heir apparent. I’m for anybody but Hawley.”
