During Senator Claire McCaskill’s last Senate run, her staggering wealth, epitomized by her private jet travel, was a major political negative for her. Now, with her completely tone deaf reaction to the impact of tax reform, her multi-million dollar lifestyle is set to play an even more significant and negative role in her re-election campaign.
As Missouri Rising Action’s newest graphic shows, Senator McCaskill’s high-flying lifestyle presents a myriad of examples of her tremendous wealth. One such illustration is her family’s investment, totaling as much as $250,000, in Xiling Fund III, LLC, which specializes in ” investing in rare high quality Chinese art” and antiques.
Senator McCaskill’s inability to understand how significant tax reform-related bonuses are to Missouri families is bad enough. The problem is compounded though by the stature of the candidate running against her, Attorney General Josh Hawley, with CBS saying she faces “real jeopardy” this year:
“However, Republicans appear to have settled on state Attorney General Josh Hawley as their standard bearer this time around, meaning that McCaskill could be in real jeopardy in this Republican state.”
Last year, Senator McCaskill had a chance to help significantly boost the economic fortunes of Missouri families. Instead she chose to appease the far-left elements in the Democratic Party. Voters won’t soon forget that Senator McCaskill wouldn’t put them first.
