Hawley faces legislator ire at ‘status quo’ tweet


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – After Sen. Kurt Schaefer announced over 100 legislators endorsing his bid for attorney general, Republican primary opponent and University of Missouri law professor Josh Hawley tweeted the endorsements were “100 reasons why Kurt Schaefer can’t change anything in Jeff City” and “100 promises to protect the status quo in Jeff City.”

The tweet inspired the endorsing legislators to respond, touting their legislative achievements and asking if their efforts make them the status quo.
