Former Missouri Senator Jack Danforth Says Hawley’s Electoral Challenge is Highly Destructive

Former Missouri Senator John Danforth is saying Senator Josh Hawley’s and others who are challenging Joe Biden’s election win is a radical and highly destructive attack.

The 84 year old, three-term Republican Senator Danforth released a written statement yesterday (Monday).

Danforth has been a long time supporter of Hawley.

He publicly back Hawley’s successful runs for Missouri attorney general in 2016 and in the Senate in 2018.

Senator Hawley said last week that he intends to raise objections when Congress meets tomorrow (Wednesday) to affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the election.

Ten other Republican senators and senators-elect have joined President Donald Trump’s effort to overturn results in November.
