(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.) Missouri GOP Senate Candidate Josh Hawley has filed for the Senate race against democrat incumbent, Claire McCaskill.
Hawley made the announcement official Tuesday afternoon that he will be running for the 2018 U.S. Senate Primary.
"I'm running for the Senate because Senator Claire McCaskill has broken her promises to the people of Missouri," Hawley saidTuesday. "Twelve years ago, Senator McCaskill went to Washington promising to be independent, promising to work across party lines, promising to represent the people of Missouri and she has broken those promises time and again."
Hawley added that McCaskill has voted with Senator Chuck Schumer of New York and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in favor of the "liberal party line instead of the interests of the people of Missouri."
