The Club for Growth super PAC in Missouri raised $2 million for state Attorney General Josh Hawley (R) in 2017 and finished the year with $1.99 million in cash on hand. The donation came from one donor: businessman Richard Uihlein. (Hotline reporting)

CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS. “During a speech to pastors in Kansas City in December, Hawley 'linked the problem of sex trafficking to the sexual revolution of the 1960s.'" At an event “hosted by the Missouri Renewal Project, Hawley tied the issue to the sexual revolution, the cultural shift in the 1960s and 1970s that eliminated the social stigma for premarital sex and contraception that had been commonplace in the United States during previous decades.”

Hawley: “The sexual revolution has led to exploitation of women on a scale that we would never have imagined, never have imagined.” (Kansas City Star)
