Three years ago today, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign received two of several donations from Claire McCaskill and her husband, Joe Sheppard. In total, McCaskill and Sheppard made seven donations totaling $49,000 to Hillary’s presidential campaigns and victory fund.
In addition to donating more than the average annual salary of Missourians, Millionaire Claire was also one of the first U.S. Senators to endorse Clinton. McCaskill went on to be a frequent, vocal surrogate for Hillary throughout the 2016 election, heaping praise on Hillary, stating that she believed supporting Hillary was “not a hard choice”:
“This is not a hard choice, and I don’t think it will be a hard choice for America. This is a woman who is tested, who has a strong resume of accomplishments in every important job she’s had. She doesn’t need to get briefed about the complicated world we live in. The reason this is not hard is because of who she is at this point in time in our county’s history.”
