Hawley, Schaefer rolling up endorsements in Missouri GOP AG primary

The Republican primary for attorney general may be among the most interesting races in the nation in 2016.

It pits state Sen. Kurt Schaefer against law professor Josh Hawley. Democrats Teresa Hensley and Jake Zimmerman are waiting on the other side.

Hawley and Schaefer have been hammering each other for some time. Tuesday, Hawley picked up the endorsement of Citizens United’s political action committee.

“Josh Hawley is a principled constitutional conservative,” David Bossie of Citizens United said in a statement.

The Missouri State Troopers Association endorsed Schaefer this week.
