Claire McCaskill was one of Hillary Clinton’s earliest supporters, endorsing her 2016 campaign in 2013. In the final days of her struggling re-election bid, McCaskill is trying to tamp down her ties to Clinton:
Missourians know that McCaskill is not a moderate and will fall in line with party leaders like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. The connections between McCaskill and Clinton are clear:
- McCaskill voted with Clinton 84 percent of the time
- McCaskill called Clinton “the most qualified” person to be President
- McCaskill repeatedly defended Clinton over her use of private email while she was Secretary of State
- McCaskill defended the pay-to-play scheme between the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton State Department
Missourians deserve a senator who will represent their interests in D.C., not just another liberal who with toe the Democratic party line.
