He has endured insults from AOC and just about every progressive pundit in the nation. Pay cable comedians even crassly labeled him a douche-bag. But now Missouri Senator Josh Hawley is laughing all the way to bank.
To wit and because TKC has been consistently saying that his newfound notoriety has only helped his career . . .
THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS BAD PRESS!!! MISSOURI SENATOR HAWLEY CAPITALIZED ON WIDESPREAD HATERATION AGAINST HIS ELECTION CHALLENGES EVEN AMID OUTCRY OVER AN ALLEGED CONNECTION TO THE CAPITOL INSURRECTION!!!
Actually, chest thumping over big money is more important than his controversial gesture that hack pundits claimed would follow him forever.
SENATOR HAWLEY RAISED NEARLY ONE MILLION BUCKS IN SMALL DONATIONS!!!
Even better . . .
His EPIC money win reveals a populist endorsement of his politics along with his obvious desire to take the national stage rather than work on boring Show-Me state issues like our broken roads, crumbling infrastructure, ruined healthcare system, ongoing opioid crisis along with statewide education in shambles despite years of Republican rule.
Here's the report . . .
Deets . . .
January was Sen. Josh Hawley's best fundraising month—by far—since his 2018 election, with a flood of small-dollar donations more than eclipsing the corporate cash he lost after leading an effort to block certification of President Biden's Electoral College win.
Why it matters: Corporate PACs cut ties with the Missouri Republican after the Capitol insurrection that followed the Hawley-led gambit. But his grassroots fundraising bonanza in the weeks after shows the GOP base still firmly in Hawley's camp.
You decide . . .
