Hawley slams McCaskill over Kavanaugh decision
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Josh Hawley says Missouri's Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill is "another Washington liberal" for her decision to vote against President Donald Trump's U.S. Supreme Court nominee.
McCaskill on Wednesday announced she will vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh over his positions on "dark money" issues.
She also says that allegations raised by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 30 years ago when they were in high school are troubling and should be examined. But she said she didn't base her decision on that.
Hawley has maintained support for Kavanaugh. The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Hawley on Wednesday said he will continue to do so "until there is some proof" of the allegations. He urged a vote next week.
