Attorney General Josh Hawley is saying Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill’s lack of experience with the Supreme Court may snub her chances of winning the Missouri primary.
The first advertisement of his Senate campaign aired Monday on broadcast and cable networks ahead of President Trump’s announcement of a successor to Justice Anthony Kennedy.
In the 30-second video, Hawley touts his personal experience with the high court as a former clerk for Chief Justice John Roberts.
Hawley also argued McCaskill’s values may be out of touch with Missouri voters.
The attorney general has launched https://www.supremeclaire.com/ to show the senator’s voting history, which includes backing a filibuster of Neil Gorsuch.
