Republican lawmakers have been rallying around Governor Mike Parson’s appointment of GOP state Treasurer Eric Schmitt as state attorney general.

A report from Missourinet say Senator Denny Hoskins from Warrensburg says he’s had productive collaborations with Schmitt and St. Louis Democratic Senator Jamilah Nasheed has also praised Schmitt working with her on changes to Missouri’s municipal court laws.

Schmitt takes over as Attorney General January 3rd when current officeholder Josh Hawley joins the U.S. Senate.
