U.S. Senatorial candidate Josh Hawley stopped in for a visit with patrons at Stacey’s Place in Mexico on Wednesday, Oct. 31. Hawley, who is currently serving as Attorney General, made the campaign stop less than one week away from the hotly contested general election in his race against incumbent U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill.
On his stop, Hawley went table to table to meet farmers and patrons seeking their support for election day. During an interview in the parking lot, Hawley addressed a question on law enforcement.
”I do think it is vital that we do everything we can to support law enforcement including giving them a raise here in the State of Missouri, which I think the legislation recently approved,” Hawley said. “And I am certainly in favor of giving them what they deserve. And doing everything we can nationally to get more cops on the streets. And just backing our law enforcement. It’s been one of my greatest privileges as Attorney General to be an advocate for law enforcement. And as the state so called ‘Top Cop,’ I take that very, very seriously. The work that our law enforcement do is absolutely incredible, and they deserve to have an advocate not just here, but in the United States Senate.”
