Campaign consultants worked with Hawley’s official staff

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Star reports that out-of-state political consultants that went on to work for Republican Josh Hawley’s Missouri Senate campaign also advised his staff in the attorney general’s office.

Records obtained by the paper show that campaign consultants gave direct guidance and tasks to Hawley’s state staff. Records show the consultants started helping Hawley’s official staff within days of him taking office in 2017.

The liberal group American Bridge is using the consultants’ early work with Hawley’s official staff to renew criticism of him as a ladder-climber.

Hawley’s campaign and the attorney general’s office did not immediately comment Wednesday.

Records show Hawley’s attorney general campaign paid the consultants. The newspaper reports that there are no records of consultants being paid or reimbursed with state funds.
