'Black folk will be catching hell again.' Ads seek to scare black voters in Missouri

WASHINGTON -- A new radio ad seeks to frighten black voters away from Sen. Claire McCaskill’s campaign by suggesting the Democrat supports lynchings.

Another ad tells black voters to ask McCaskill “why she doesn’t want our children?”

It took Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley’s campaign more than four hours to respond to the ads, which are meant to boost the Republican’s campaign. The one-sentence response came after African-American Democratic leaders blasted Hawley’s silence and McClatchy provided audio of both ads to the campaign.

“Of course we don’t support this,” Kelli Ford, spokeswoman for Hawley, said of the ads.

1. Disgusting and another example of Josh H's unsuitability for the Senate. It took ...

four hours for his campaign to respond. How low will Hawley's campaign go? He's copying rump tricks almost one for one, and this guy is supposed to be the guardian for the people of the state of Missouri (he is the so called Attorney General for MO).

His campaign denied or stated that we don't support this but someone supporting Hawley ran the ads anyway, indicating the type of people supporting Hawley. Racists obviously.

Another example of where the MO republicans are concerned about the huge number of black votes in KCMO and STLMO (a big % of Missouri blacks live in these two metro areas).
