Hanaway Campaign Statement on Tom Schweich’s Announcement

St. Louis- Nick Maddux, spokesman for Republican gubernatorial candidate Catherine Hanaway, issued the following statement in response to State Auditor Tom Schweich’s announcement.

“Conservative activists throughout Missouri believe primaries have repeatedly cost the Republican Party statewide elections. Today, Auditor Schweich chose to create yet another primary. Auditor Schweich’s electoral record is marked by relentless pursuits of the next office and tearing apart the Republican Party. First, he campaigned against Senator Roy Blunt in 2010, then he aired dirty attack ads in his Auditor primary, next he attempted to strong arm his way into the 2012 Republican Senate primary, and now, just 16 days after being sworn into a four year term as Auditor, he announces he will create a Republican primary for Governor. In stark contrast, Speaker Hanaway has a track record of leading and winning the fights Missourians care about most. Speaker Hanaway led the Republican Party to its first majority in the Missouri House in half a century, made concealed carry the law in Missouri, put thousands of criminals behind bars as U.S. Attorney and balanced the budget while fighting off a Governor’s proposed tax increases. Speaker Hanaway will bring this bold, proven leadership to the Governor’s Mansion.”
