Election Update: JOSH HAWLEYWednesday, August 15, 2018
JOSH HAWLEY – MISSOURI
Polling Average: Hawley +0.2
State Attorney General Josh Hawley won the Republican nomination this month and is now locked in a competitive race against liberal Senator Claire McCaskill. Last month, Hawley trailed McCaskill in the average of public polls, but now he has a slight lead. Hawley is a strong candidate who is highlighting McCaskill’s liberal record. It’s not surprising that she’s coming up with a string of excuses to avoid debating him. This race gives conservatives a major pick-up opportunity, but Hawley will need a lot of help to make sure Missouri voters know the truth about McCaskill and her liberal record.
