At Least He’s Not Your Attorney General

Missouri Republican Josh Hawley

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2018, and he’s apparently willing to say just about anything to gather support for his campaign. As CNN reports:

“The sexual revolution has led to exploitation of women on a scale that we would never have imagined,” Josh Hawley said in a December 7 speech to Christian pastors at an event hosted by the Missouri Renewal Project…

…”You know what I’m talking about, the 1960s, 1970s, it became commonplace in our culture among our cultural elites, Hollywood, and the media to talk about — to denigrate the biblical truth about husband and wife, man and woman,” Hawley said.

Hawley argued that there’s a “human trafficking crisis” because “our culture has completely lost its way.”

“We must also deliver a message to our culture that the false gospel of ‘anything goes’ ends in this road of slavery,” Hawley said. [Pols emphasis]

Incumbent Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill took to Twitter for a response:

  1. McCaskill, who famously trolled the Missouri GOP electorate into selecting Troy Aikin as her 2012 opponent, apparently thinks Hawley will be her 2018 opponent whether she wants him or not. Good of him to provide such great ammunition to start things off…

  2. Arvadonian1 says:

    McCaskill is quite possibly the luckiest politician in the country!

  3. RepealAndReplace says:

    Between Sykes and Hawley,  it's a feeding frenzy for the Todd Akin wing of the Missouri  GOP. Which will Todd endorse?

  4. JohnInDenver says:

    Missouri once again appears to be rising to "Show Me" state status, answering the question "just how impolitic does one need to be to run as a Republican?"

    Add the current Governor (famous for his pictures of a mistress and, more recently, "use of Confide, a messaging app that automatically deletes text messages"). Now, even Republicans in the state House and Senate are asking him to resign.

    And yet … Republicans maintain a super-majority in the Legislature and have voted R for President in the past 3 cycles.
