Josh Hawley Blames Washington Republicanism For Big Losses

Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri is blaming Washington Republicanism for big losses in the midterm elections.

Hawley says, "Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night" because the party’s agenda, set forth by leadership, consistently caved to Democrats.

"Following Tuesday night’s midterm elections, where Republicans are looking to squeak out small majorities in the House and Senate, Hawley blasted the Republican establishment for their caving to Democrats as well as corporate special interests," reported Breitbart.

Senator Hawley Blames Washington Republicanism For Midterm Losses

"Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night," Hawley tweeted.

"When your 'agenda' is cave to Big Pharma on insulin, cave to Schumer on gun control & Green New Deal, and tease changes to Social Security and Medicare, you lose," Hawley added.

"Hawley called on House and Senate Republicans to put forth a fiercely economic populist agenda to help their working and lower-middle class base and vastly popular positions on crime and corruption," reports Breitbart.

"What are Republicans actually going to do for working people? How about, to start: tougher tariffs on China, reshore American jobs, open up American energy full throttle, 100k new cops on the street," Hawley added. "Unrig the system."

"The remarks come as Hawley declared earlier this week that he would not support Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for Senate Majority Leader if Republicans take back the Senate," according to Breitbart.

"I don’t imagine I will, no," Hawley said about whether or not he would support McConnell. "I’m not sure if any other senator will run or not. Nobody’s indicated they would. But my view is that we need new leadership in that position."
