Sen. Josh Hawley's (R-MO) polls plummeted by 12 points to below 50 percent after reports of his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, reported the Kansas City Star. Nationally, however, Hawley is raking in money for the Republican Party.
Axios reported Sunday that corporate donors and establishment Republicans aren't giving, but the grassroots is helping the party make up the absence.
"Digital fundraising appeals sent by the National Republican Senatorial Committee under Hawley's name raised more money in February than those of any other senator except NRSC Chairman Rick Scott," said Axios. "The NRSC has a Hawley-branded page on the fundraising platform WinRed, asking donors to 'help end cancel culture and take back the Senate majority!' It also sent at least two fundraising emails last month under Hawley's name."
Personally, Hawley pulled in $1.5 million from nearly 28,000 donors between Jan. 1 and March 5, Axios reported, citing campaign finance reports. It's more than 12 times what he raised at the same time in 2020.
Corporate conservative groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said that they will no longer support members who voted against the certification of the 2020 election.
