MO SENATE: Josh Hawley (R)

About the State

Campaign Website

About Josh:

Raised in Lexington, Missouri, Josh Hawley currently serves as the state’s Attorney General. As Missouri’s top prosecutor, Josh has earned a reputation for taking on the big and the powerful to protect Missouri workers and families. He has battled big government and big business, the special interests, organized crime, and anyone who would threaten the wellbeing of Missourians.

Josh is recognized as one of the nation’s leading constitutional lawyers. He has litigated at the Supreme Court of the United States, the federal courts of appeals, and in state court, fighting for the people’s liberties.

Josh has been a dedicated advocate for religious liberty, both as Attorney General and for his entire professional career. Before he became Attorney General, Josh fought Obamacare at the Supreme Court — and won — as one of the lead attorneys in the landmark Hobby Lobby case. Josh was also a lead attorney in the Hosanna-Tabor case at the Supreme Court, protecting the rights of churches.

A native of Lexington, Missouri in rural Lafayette County, Josh graduated from Rockhurst High School in Kansas City. After college and law school, he moved back home to mid-Missouri, where he lives with his wife, Erin, their two boys, Elijah and Blaise, and their horse, Snap.

As Attorney General, he has fought the Washington overreach threatening our farms and family businesses, including the Waters of the United States Rule and the Clean Power Plan.

Now Josh is fighting the big opioid manufacturers, taking on their unethical marketing practices that have helped create an epidemic of opioid abuse. He has cracked down on human trafficking in Missouri, leading the largest anti-trafficking bust in Missouri history. And he is investigating the most powerful company in the world—Google—to ensure the safety of Missourians’ private information.
