In the ultimate sign that she’s gone DC native, Claire McCaskill has now literally been endorsed by the District of Columbia. Yesterday afternoon, the DC City Council tweeted their support for McCaskill – who owns a $2.7 million condo at the City Center development described as “DC’s destination for the One Percent” – after she declared strong support for DC statehood:
“On behalf of the over 700K people of the District of Columbia, thank you, Senator Claire McCaskill @clairecmc, for your full endorsement of DC statehood. We pay taxes and fight and die in wars that we are voiceless to impact due to our non-vote in Congress”
The mutual love between DC and McCaskill is one reason she’s been named the “most vulnerable” Senate Democrat in 2018, and this development surely won’t help her.
