Senator Josh Hawley was Conservative of the Year 2019

Joshua David “Josh” Hawley, born December 31, 1979 (age 41), is the conservative U.S. Senator from Missouri, serving since 2019. He is a Republican and defeated pro-abort liberal Democrat Claire McCaskill in the 2018 midterm elections. Previously, he served as Missouri Attorney General and also worked for conservative legal organizations such as The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty and Alliance Defending Freedom.

As a U.S. Senator, Hawley has taken the lead on requiring judicial nominees who respect the U.S. Constitution and who are not pro-abortion. Sen. Hawley has forcefully promoted strongly conservative positions on multiple issues.[1]

He also defended President Trump during the Democrats' witchhunts against him. Hawley showed his adamant support and understanding of Trump's innocence.[2]

After vowing to object to the "results" of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, Hawley's Washington, D.C. home, where his wife and newborn baby were, was surrounded by a militant mob of far-left activists in early January 2021, some of which tried to pound on the door to further harass and intimidate his family.[3]
