SHOT/CHASER: McCaskill’s Mixed Message on Missouri Roots

Claire McCaskill likes to claim her Missouri roots during an election year but she has always been in it for the politics:

SHOT: In a Politico interview McCaskill stated: “I’ve never left this state. I could have gone to a fancy law school. I didn’t want to. I wanted to stay here, and I had to work my way through school as a waitress.”

CHASER: Back in 2015, however, McCaskill said “I made my selection for law school based on the fact that if I went in Missouri, everybody that I went to law school with would be contributors of mine when I ran for office.”
