Americans for Prosperity Action: Voters Have High Hopes for Hawley

Press Release

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action(SM) congratulated Josh Hawley on his election to the U.S. Senate. The group also applauded its grassroots activists for their inspiring effort to boost Hawley’s victory and praised Missourians for making the right choice.

AFP Action Senior Adviser Jeremy Cady released the following statement:

“This election is proof Missouri voters wanted solutions, not more partisan bickering. Josh’s enthusiasm for tackling our broken health care system, growing federal debt, and government overreach is why we supported him and why we’re excited he’ll be representing Missouri.

“Our activists were nothing short of spectacular and showed that great results can be achieved with hard work and determination. And now that the elections are over, we hope Washington can come together to rise above the partisanship and deliver meaningful results to the American people.”

Background

Activists and staff knocked on over 65,000 doors and called close to 1,000,000 Missourians advocating against Sen. McCaskill. Since taking office in 2006, Sen. McCaskill voted for the government takeover of health care, opposed qualified judges, and has contributed to a ballooning U.S. debt that has surpassed $21 trillion.
