Josh Hawley claims several different Missouri towns as his hometown, from Lexington to Ashland, maybe even Springfield. One thing that is for sure is he is one of two U.S. senators from Missouri — the other one being Roy Blunt.

While Sen. Blunt is quite conservative, most of his ideological views are that of the Republican Party. And while more liberal folks may disagree with his views, disagreements are, for the most part, fairly civil.
