Hawley to Introduce Bill to Move Federal Agencies out of Washington D.C. to Economically Stagnant Areas

Jack Crowe, National Review

The “Helping Infrastructure Restore the Economy (HIRE) Act,” which is cosponsored by Senator Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.), would move 90 percent of the positions within ten executive agencies to economically distressed regions that have a stake in the work of those respective agencies. Hawley's new legislation, if it were to pass, would certainly make good on a promise he made during his maiden senate floor speech to ensure that the economic gains of recent decades flow from the “aristocratic elite” to the “working men and women” of the country who want to “build a life where [they] grew up.” It will prove difficult to secure Democratic support.

Hawley's due diligence draws unfair criticism

Rachel Bovard, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It seems the GOP legal establishment does not want a dispute over Michael S. Bogren (a nominee to the Western District of Michigan) to threaten the uninterrupted churn of judicial nominees through the Senate. But the desire for quantity is not an excuse to overlook quality — particularly on issues of such fundamental importance. Happily for independent-minded conservatives everywhere, Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley does not appear deterred by the paroxysms and pearl-clutching of the GOP legal establishment. Hawley is rapidly becoming the Senate Judiciary Committee’s chief inquisitor. And thank goodness for that.

Nominees Hostile to Religious Liberty Have No Place on the Federal Bench

Sen. Josh Hawley, National Review

Tens of millions of Americans believe what the Tennes family believes about marriage, including Catholics, Jews, Mormons, Muslims, Protestants, and more. We are in a moment in history when the basic human liberty of these citizens to live, work, and otherwise participate in public life is threatened by those who view their beliefs as toxic and unacceptable. The right to religious free exercise enshrined in the First Amendment is the fundamental freedom, and we need judges who will uphold it. Michael Bogren’s answers are not acceptable for a judicial nominee. We can and must do better.

The Six Hottest Senate Races For Conservatives

At a major meeting of conservative leaders yesterday, some of the movement’s best political minds handicapped the Senate races with us, and this is where we see the hottest conservative campaigns as of today.

We Need More Conservatives Running For The U.S. Senate

In 1977 and 1978 conservative giant Howard Phillips visited every congressional district in America to recruit candidates. During a trip to New Hampshire in 1977, only five people showed up for a meeting. One of them was Gordon Humphrey, who volunteered to run against Democrat Thomas J. McIntyre and became one of three New Right senators elected in 1978.

Support Josh Hawley for Attorney General in Missouri

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

The attorney general is a more and more important position and conservatives need to get good ones elected. In Missouri, Josh Hawley has defended people of faith and believes in the defense of religious liberty. He strongly supports the second amendment and is pro-life. We need people like Josh Hawley to fill attorneys general roles around the country.
