Conservative group puts $700k behind Hawley

A Republican group is raising and spending huge amounts of money defending Sen. Josh Hawley after he was ostracized for early January’s attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Why it matters: The Senate Conservatives Fund is backfilling lost corporate and personal donations with needed political and financial support, helping inoculate the Missouri lawmaker as he weighs re-election or a possible presidential campaign in 2024.


What's happening: The SCF, a political action committee that backs Senate candidates on the right, has paid $397,782.53 since Jan. 12 to send texts and email blasts in support of Hawley.

  • The spam-blocking service RoboKiller estimates SCF has sent 2 million pro-Hawley text messages this month.
  • The group also is raising money for Hawley directly. Its executive director told Axios that SCF has "bundled" roughly $310,000 for the senator's campaign committee.
