Daily Caller: Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley won the state’s Republican senate primary Tuesday evening, kicking off a race against Democratic primary winner and incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill.
Hawley edged out a victory over a field of 11 Republicans, taking 59 percent of the vote. McCaskill defeated six other Democrats to win 84 percent of her party’s vote.
McCaskill has $6.6 million cash on hand after raising $22.4 million, while Hawley has $2.3 million after raising $5.3 million, according to OpenSecrets.
McCaskill is considered to be one of the senate’s most vulnerable Democrats, trying to stay in the favor of a constituency that heavily favored President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election cycle. Trump won Missouri by roughly 19 percentage points against Hillary Clinton.
