Hawley Campaign Launches Two New Web Ads

March 26, 2018

McCaskill says Clinton remarks ‘taken out of context’ and she ‘understands the point she was trying to make’

COLUMBIA, Mo. — The Josh Hawley for Senate campaign launched two web ads today after Senator Claire McCaskill made major gaffes on national television over the weekend in an interview with MSNBC’s “Kasie DC.”

The focus of the first web ad is Sen. McCaskill’s response to a previous Hawley campaign web ad linking her to Hillary Clinton’s comments about the “backwards” voters who supported President Trump. McCaskill defended Clinton by saying “I understand the point she was trying to make but it felt like she was criticizing Missouri voters” and “I think it certainly is being taken out of context.”

In the second web ad, Sen. McCaskill is making an argument why people voted for President Trump, but also makes the case for why she should be voted out of office. Sen. McCaskill, who has been in politics for 30 years, said, “If you’ve played by the rules and worked hard all your life and you’re further behind this year than you were 10 years ago, no wonder you want something completely different.”

Josh Hawley for Senate Press Secretary Kelli Ford said, “Claire McCaskill accidentally told the truth when she defended Hillary Clinton’s insulting comments about ‘backwards’ voters, making the case for why lifetime politicians like herself should be voted out of office. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.”

Both ads are up online with money behind them, as of Monday.
