Canceled fundraiser latest fallout for Republican Hawley
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Loews Hotels says it has canceled a fundraiser at an Orlando, Florida, hotel for U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley.
It’s the latest fallout for the Republican lawmaker who staged an Electoral college challenge that became the focus of a violent Capitol uprising in support of President Donald Trump.
A statement from the hotel posted Saturday on Twitter said it was “horrified“ by the events at the U.S. Capitol and by all who supported and incited the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Hawley’s fundraiser was scheduled for February at a hotel at Universal Orlando.
Hawley faces waning support from longtime donors.
