Hawley Wins MO Senate Seat

Posted by

Longtime Missouri Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill was defeated Tuesday by Republican challenger Josh Hawley.  Hawley garnered nearly 75 percent of the vote in Stone and Taney Counties, while state wide, he polled 52 percent of the vote.  Hawley’s victory along with other key senate races around the country ensured the Republican Party control of the Senate.  However, the House of Representatives flipped to Democrat control with a majority of seating going “blue” as ballots were tallied.
