Claire McCaskill’s campaign hit turbulence yesterday when the Washington Free Beacon broke that she chose to travel on her private plane during her RV tour across Missouri. She admitted to Politico that a broken door on the RV drove her crazy.
We at Missouri Rising Action couldn’t help but suggest that Claire give Hillary a free flight on Air Claire for their Friendiversary gift!
Claire’s flying flub drew a lot of criticism:

In the you can't make it up department: Sen. Claire McCaskill's campaign said she was taking an RV trip. But her private plane seemed to take the same route as the bus. https://t.co/P9SSPxeTkd

This is wild: Claire McCaskill said she was “hitting the road” in an RV, on a “Veterans For Claire” tour throughout MO. But her private plane took the same route, @FreeBeacon reports https://t.co/ln1wflN9fT
