Joplin businessman Humphreys contributes $1 million to Hawley
The oversized contribution is the second Humphreys has given Hawley this year. Ethics Commission records indicates Hawley received $500,000 from him on May 2.
Hawley, a law professor and national appellate lawyer, is facing Sen. Kurt Schaefer in the Republican primary. The winner will face either Cass County Prosecutor Teresa Hensley or former State Rep. Jake Zimmerman, who are running for the Democratic nomination, in November.
