Hawley Launches 100-Stop Working Tour to Highlight Middle-Class Missourians Left Behind by Sen. McCaskill
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Attorney General Josh Hawley is launching a 100-stop Working Tour to highlight middle-class Missourians who have been left behind by Senator Claire McCaskill and her destructive policies.
At stops in every corner of the state, Hawley will visit factories, farms and small businesses to argue why Senator McCaskill’s record of partisanship and voting lock-step with Chuck Schumer has hurt middle-class families, and what solutions the U.S. Senate should pursue to fix the problem.
Hawley issued the following statement:
“The survival of the middle class is the defining struggle of our time. While the millionaires of Washington, Wall Street, and Hollywood thrive, hardworking Americans face stagnant wages, suffocating debt, and rising health care and education costs. As big banks, big pharma, and big government collude to ship jobs overseas, sabotage American farmers, and open up the border, middle-class Americans are being left behind.
“That’s the result of Senator McCaskill’s tenure in the U.S. Senate. She has been a willing accomplice, putting partisanship and coastal elite donors ahead of the needs of Missourians. She simply hasn’t listened to her constituents, and there’s no sign that she will change.
“She recently admitted her sole argument for a third term in the Senate is to oppose President Trump’s agenda. That’s not what Missourians want from their Senator.
“Missouri deserves a Senator who will take on the D.C. cartel, not become part of it. And so I will fight to break up the alliance of big government and big business, to end the cronyism and insider dealing that stains our politics and keeps working people down. This is the message I will take across the state on our Working Tour.”
Hawley has already made five stops on the tour so far, including the Durham Company (Lebanon, Mo.), Dexter Bar-B-Q (Sikeston, Mo.), Starline Brass, Inc. (Sedalia, Mo.), Phoenix Manufacturing (Glasgow, Mo.), and most recently POET Biorefining (Macon, Mo.).
