Trump: Josh Hawley Is ‘Our Next Senator’ from Missouri

President Donald Trump referred to Missouri’s Republican Attorney General Josh Hawley as “our next senator,” during a speech about tax reform in Missouri on Wednesday.

Hawley is one of several Republicans vying to run against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in 2018 and is considered a strong favorite to win the Republican nomination.

McCaskill is widely considered to be one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators up for reelection in 2018. Trump won Missouri by 19 percentage points over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Trump attacked McCaskill during his speech for her opposition to the Republican tax reform plan. “She wants your taxes to go up,” he said while noting that Hawley favored the plan.
