Hawley: McCaskill doesn’t have the guts to stand up to her own party

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Disregarding all accountability to the people of Missouri, Senator McCaskill avoided telling anyone how she would vote on Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo until she went to the Senate floor today. In response to her decision, Attorney General Josh Hawley issued the following statement:

“Claire McCaskill is a typical politician – always there when you don’t need her, never there when you do. If Missouri learned anything this week, it’s that our Senator is completely afraid of standing up to Chuck Schumer and the dangerous Democrats who refuse to support our Secretary of State. Claire McCaskill doesn’t have the guts to stand up to her own party.”
