Republican Sen. Josh Hawley Says He Will Not Vote to Re-Elect McConnell as Senate GOP Leader

Sen. Josh Hawley (R.-Mo.) told in an interview on Friday that he will not vote to re-elect Sen. Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.) as the Republican Senate leader.

“He told RCP that he will not vote for him as Republican Senate Leader, regardless of which party controls the Senate,” reported.  “’I’m not going to support the current leadership in the party,’ he said, citing ‘key decisions’ that were made over the last two years.”

Hawley criticized the Republican leadership for not offering a clear public policy vision to voters in this year’s midterm elections.
