On the television in the Kansas City market this evening:

Announcer: You don’t work on Wall Street or have a K Street lobbyist. You’re not a billionaire or a banker. And too many here just aren’t listening to you. But, she is.

Claire McCaskill fought devastating cuts to Medicare because you earned your benefits. And she teamed up with a Republican senator to crack down on pork barrel spending and end the back room deals.

No, you don’t work on Wall Street or have a lobbyist. But, you do have Claire McCaskill and she’s fighting for you.
