Hawley Keeps Up Debate Challenges in MO-Sen. Race

Attorney General Josh Hawley (R-MO) visited Columbia, Missouri on Tuesday, reissuing his call to Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) to debate him on the back of a flatbed trailer.

KOMU reported:

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley made a stop in Columbia Tuesday on his “Let’s Debate” tour, challenging Senator Claire McCaskill to a political debate on a trailer.

Hawley said the flatbed trailer represents his willingness to meet McCaskill “anytime, anywhere.”

According to the Columbia Tribune, McCaskill does not want to debate Hawley on a flatbed, and instead has “called for town hall style debates.”

McCaskill ignored most of Hawley’s calls for debate before he was the nominee. During the run-up to the primary, Hawley refused to appear on the same stage as his GOP rivals.

McCaskill called for town hall style debates and criticized Hawley for not holding town hall meetings with voters.

Hawley is touring the state ahead of what will be one of the most competitive U.S. Senate races this fall.
