This election wasn’t about me, it was about the future of this great country.
Some of the responses:
You won’t fight for me. You won’t fight for the 10 year old rape victim; you’ll fight for her rapist. You won’t fight for those who are impoverished. You’ll fight for the corporations. You won’t fight for eduction; you’ll fight to destroy it. You won’t fight for minorities or LGBTQ; you’ll fight to take away any hard won rights they have. So when you say Missouri, you’re saying white conservative males. [….]
Interestingly, he didn’t mention Missouri.
You’ll be a senator for yourself, just like you were an AG
I’ve heard him spread disinformation and prejudice for 2 years while pledging to be an obstacle to anything bipartisan in DC. He doesn’t deserve a chance, and should have been impeached from AG for abuse of office
Yea – that “hoodie-in-the-pizza-parlor” image sure went away fast! Now it’s power-suits and sucking up to Ted Cruz for “the boy-from-Bridgeton”…
Eric you will be a senator for the Lobbyists not Missouri……You have already got your eye on that NRA money that Roy Blunt got and China will be knocking on your door soon!!! LOL…….
So your social media team decided to stick with inanities? Got it.
Hey, Schitty…are ya gonna sue the schools that are closing as result of the RSV breakout???? Oh, wait…you’ve already “won,” so I guess you’re done using frivolous lawsuits to campaign now, aren’t ya?
You’re gonna do NOTHIN’ for Missouri; you’re gonna step on every one of us to work your way to the Oval Office. You’re nothin’ but an opportunist.
Just red in the paper how you intend to have Ted Cruz as your “Senatorial mentor”… Was there ever ANY DOUBT you would pick the most-hated person in America as your hero? [….]
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night. When your “agenda” is cave to Big Pharma on insulin, cave to Schumer on gun control & Green New Deal (“infrastructure”), and tease changes to Social Security and Medicare, you lose 9:53 AM · Nov 10, 2022
Some of the responses:
Embarrassing for you
Also, your leader is a flaming loser.
Look at you running away again, pretending YOURE NOT a Washington GOP. With friends like you & Trump, who needs enemies. You know what voters turned from? Insurrectionists & those that cheered them on then legged it when they attacked, that’s what. [….]
MAGA lost on Tuesday, and everybody knows it . . . [….]
I don’t know, what are YOU going to do Josh? Quit acting like you’re not a part of this crazy train ya jerk off.
Actually GOP “lost” because they are sick and tired of DJT. Roe veWade. No specific agenda on solving problems. They just bash people.
You could always run away from it.
We see what you did there.
You forgot taking away women’s rights. Or is just smarter NOT to mention that, TreasonWeasel?
And kowtowing to Trump. Or have you not been watching Bobo’s election returns?
fascism, election deniers and trump lost big on tuesday. if though you don’t live in MO, you’re lucky our backward state is willing to support fascists like yourself.
What really lost big was election denial. Your team of anti-democracy seditious conspirators took a bath.
Maybe you should work for America for once instead against our democracy, people, values, and allies.
You voted to kill the insulin cap. That’s mean. Republicans deserved to lose.
Are you saying you support capping insulin prices, cuz you didn’t vote for it
Are you stupid? Traitors, liars, seditionists, democracy killers, misogynists and racists DON’T WIN.
Maybe Republicans shouldn’t run from the problems they help create. [….]
Maybe when Republicans stop taking away woman’s right to make their own healthcare decisions and stop force pregnancies, Republicans might have a chance. When Republicans stop the lying about “open borders”, stop lying about stolen elections, stop the violence, hate & racism.
I thought you represented ( checks notes) folks in Missouri.
Oh, that’s right you actually live in Virginia don’t you…..
Most Americans want help with prescription drugs. If we do tax breaks for billionaires&industry, we can afford insulin to be free.
Most want common sense gun laws.
Ppl want to be represented by a neighbor.
No one wants to sacrifice Social Security.
Or, more accurately, if you acquiesce and become servile and profess fealty to a facsists would be autocratic authoritarian that tried to destroy Madisonian Democracy in the US on Jan 6th, you find out Americans like democracy and you lose.
Also, y’all fucked up with Dobbs. [….]
Actually, Josh, this party belongs to you and Trump now. And it was you and Trump that the voters told to go to hell.
Own it, bro.
Pretty funny watching Josh trying to separate himself from this debacle.
“Washington Republicanism?” Nice try at finding a spin. Americans are tired of the MAGAt/GQP/Talibangelical wing of the party turning the country upside down with all their temper tantrums, creating problems that aren’t there and all the phoney symbolism. Bibles are props to you.
Democrats made insulin cheaper, you hack.
Bro, say it loud, say it proud:
it’s your obsession with telling women what to do with their reproductive rights.
So do you want your constituents to continue to pay huge markups on insulin?
You do nothing for Missouri (the state you don’t live in and seldom visit) but carp on the sidelines. And Schmitt will be more of the same.
When you attack our elections and attack the capital and offer nothing but hate and bigotry and anger, you lose!
Republicanism lost, but Americans won. So there’s that.
You’re a God damn idiot. You lost bro everything you stand for lost last night. Do you think we forgot you led the insurrection and then ran from it? You’re a disgrace! The only thing Americans have left to do is get rid of self serving scum like you from Congress.
Look at the GOP suddenly having post nut clarity.
Y’all shit the bed for 6 years, voted no on every single issue that would have helped so don’t pretend to care about the working class now
This is a horrible tweet
Not only is it dishonest
It’s implying that your team lost because they wanted to do the things the winning team is doing
Do you think the public is so stupid to believe this nonsense?
Nothing makes you dumber than believing a Republican
Totally. You need to incite an even bigger riot and then run away even faster. [….]
Hot Take Senator Coward. Keep flying that Trump flag.
Are you saying you will raise the price of insulin, expand gun laws to make it easier for our kids to get shot, stop the infrastructure bill and cut SS & Medicare??
You are literally Washington Republicanism Mr. Running Man. Sit down.
You guys framing “infrastructure” has something bad is so fundamentally fucking weird to me. Like you know you’re smarter than this. Why are you pretending, and trying to convince your voters, that fixing crumbling national infrastructure is somehow a bad thing?
You lost because of abortion, the fact you don’t accept elections where you lose, and the fact you let a crazy man lead your party and pick yoru candidates.
Because fascism is better? [….]
Gee, Josh, do you think it maybe also has something to do with the GOP gerrymandering constituents into disenfranchisement, suppressing votes for years, and planning a murderous coup to install a fascist dictator based on total lies that you all knew were lies?#GOPFascistTraitors
So you’re OK with diabetics paying 1,000 dollars a month, as opposed to 35 dollars?
So you’re OK with 19 dead kids and 2 teachers, as opposed to more background checks?
So you’re OK with infrastructure, much of which was built in the 1950s?
Hey Josh! Are you going to try another coup this year or wait until ’24 ??
This is the dumbest take I’ve seen yet.
Self-awareness has never been one of Josh Hawley’s (r) traits.
An email sent to supporters by Trudy Busch Valentine (D):
Hi [….], it’s Trudy. Now that votes have been counted and the dust has settled, I want to take a moment to personally thank you.
Even though we came up short Tuesday, that doesn’t make the work that we did any less meaningful. One supporter, one donation, one dollar at a time, we built a movement of people who believe in compassion, honest leadership, and a better future for the people of Missouri.
Being your nominee has been the greatest honor of my life. Thank you for standing with me, for supporting this campaign, and for all that you’ve done to help choose decency over extremism.
I know that this loss is hard. And I know that thinking about what the future might hold is scary. But underneath all the fear, disappointment, and anger, I have so much hope, [….].
Watching this team build a top-tier U.S. campaign from the ground up has shown me the power of passionate, open-hearted people like you. Trust me on this: Even though we hear a lot about the greed, hatred, and division hurting our country, there is so much more kindness, empathy, and integrity. I’ve seen it in the communities I’ve traveled to on this campaign, the voters I’ve met, and every single member of this grassroots team.
I will always be grateful for how you stood beside this campaign and believed in our movement. Together, we showed the cynics, the partisans, and pundits that kindness is something worth fighting for.
I have only one more thing to ask of you: Please, please never give up that fight for a kinder, brighter future. Together, I know that we will win. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said that if Republicans win control of the House the GOP will use raising the debt limit as leverage to force spending cuts — which could include cuts to Medicare and Social Security…
…Those who work in the United States pay Social Security and Medicare taxes that go into federal trust funds. Upon retirement, based on a person’s lifetime earnings and other factors, a retiree is eligible to receive monthly Social Security payments. Similarly, Medicare is the federal health insurance program that kicks in for people 65 and older, or for others who have disabilities…
Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson said in a radio interview Tuesday that funding for Medicare and Social Security should be approved by Congress each year rather than being automatically renewed. But with three government shutdowns in the last seven years, such a move could add uncertainty to programs millions of Americans rely on….
….the Republican Study Committee, which represents a majority of House Republicans, has proposed a specific plan to cut Medicare and Social Security benefits, including through privatization and raising the eligibility age.
Congressional Republicans will deny seniors’ benefits they have already paid into.
HOLDING CHINA ACCOUNTABLE
PROTECTING AMERICA THROUGH BIOSECURITY
TAKING ON BIG TECH
PROTECTING AMERICA FIRST
SAVING OUR JOBS
KEEPING YOUR FAMILY SAFE
FIGHTING CANCEL CULTURE
That first one is ironic, eh?
Not a word about the future of Social Security and Medicare and older Americans continuing to live with some measure of dignity and comfort.
Eric Schmitt (r) will vote in lock step with all the other republicans in Congress. They’ve already told us what they plan to do if they gain control.
On Saturday afternoon Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D) and Trudy Busch Valentine (D) spoke at a get out the vote rally outdoors at the Clay County Democratic Party headquarters in Gladstone, Missouri. This was the third or fourth campaign appearance of the day for Trudy Busch Valentine in the Kansas City metro area
Yes, it was a union crowd.
Trudy Busch Valentine (D).
The elephant in the womb:
A significant number of women in attendance were wearing progressive and pro-choice tee shirts.
This candidate is enjoying the experience:
Both Representative Cleaver and Busch Valentine spoke at the rally.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D).
As in all of her campaign events, people in the crowd waited after its conclusion to speak with and personally greet Trudy Busch Valentine.
A number of women hugged her.
It’s retail politics. This grassroots politicking clearly energizes the candidate and her campaign.
Somebody should give Eric Schmitt (r) a hug.
…This election is about an individual’s access to health care and their bodily autonomy. Yes, abortion is a personal choice. It’s about access to public education. It’s about access to good jobs and a living wage. It’s about access to affordable housing. It’s about the future of Social Security and Medicare and the ability of our citizens to spend their later years living with some measure of dignity and comfort… And it’s about cutting the cost of essential medication for those who need it to survive. It’s about the survival of Democracy and the ability of people to participate with their vote. It’s for the future.
