Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley released a video Tuesday morning announcing his candidacy for U.S. Senate. 

Hawley, 37, has emerged in recent years as a top Republican recruit to run against Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in 2018.

In a campaign video, Hawley says McCaskill is a part of the Washington D.C. establishment who has been wrong on every Supreme Court nomination over the past 11 years. 


And Hawley has recently has been 'courting' Steve Bannon who is back at the helm of the far-right Breitbart website after serving as an advisor to President Trump.

The announcement comes after two months of exploring the potential for a candidacy. He is in his first year of public office after defeating Democrat Teresa Hensley in the attorney general's race last November.

Hawley is a former University of Missouri School of Law professor. He has degrees from Stanford University and Yale Law School.
