Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) recently stated that the national GOP needs a leadership overhaul and must rid itself of “Washington Republicanism.”
Appearing on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with guest host Tulsi Gabbard, Hawley asserted that D.C. Republicans are more concerned with Wall Street than improving their constituents’ standard of living.

“We need good strong independent leadership that actually listens to voters and doesn’t just listen to the Washington lobbyists,” began Hawley. “I’ll just telling you, when it comes to the GOP, the Washington Republicanism that cares more about Wall Street than it does about working people, it’s time for that to come to an end.”
These harsh words from the Missouri congressman come after Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made negative headlines for his questionable allocation of campaign funds during the 2022 midterms.
A super PAC linked to McConnell clawed back $8 million from Blake Masters’ campaign following his primary victory earlier this year. Masters went on to lose the general election to incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly.
Another McConnell-affiliated super PAC spent millions of dollars in Alaska to campaign against a Republican candidate who was Trump-endorsed and highly popular within the state.
