Priorities USA Action and Senate Majority PAC Launch New $950,000 Digital Ad Campaign Highlighting Josh Hawley’s Questionable Relationships with Rich Donors
Washington, DC — Priorities USA Action and Senate Majority PAC are launching a new $950,000 campaign focused on Josh Hawley’s concerning relationships with his billionaire donors, which have cast a shadow of corruption over his run for Senate. The new ads point out a number of troubling instances when big money appears to have had an undue influence on Hawley’s actions as attorney general.
“Since first setting foot in Jefferson City, Josh Hawley has put himself and his wealthy donors ahead of Missourians,” said Matt Lopez, spokesman for Priorities USA Action. “Missourians need to know about his cozy relationships with rich and powerful donors that have affected his conduct as attorney general, and Priorities and SMP are proud to be partners in this continued digital effort to show voters the truth about Hawley.”
“Josh Hawley campaigned for attorney general as someone who would clean up corruption in Jefferson City, but he has only made the problem worse,” said Hannah Hurley, spokesperson for SMP. “Instead of looking out for hardworking Missourians, he has curried favor with wealthy donors; protecting them at all costs. When Missourians needed him to thoroughly investigate disgraced former governor Greitens; Hawley looked the other way, and when his top political donor was accused of running a pay-to-play scheme with Missouri lawmakers; Hawley did nothing. SMP and Priorities are committed to making sure every Missouri voter knows that Josh Hawley routinely shirks his responsibilities; prioritizing campaign cash over the well-being of Missourians.”
