Senator Claire McCaskill’s campaign isn’t wasting any time, releasing a new ad:
Narrator: It’s a Missouri story born in Houston under the shadow of the McCaskill family mill. There was a drought that year, business slowed and the family moved around – Houston, Lebanon, Columbia. Clare worked her way through college and law school, waiting tables.
For years she drove a rusted through Chevy Nova. For her first campaign she knocked on eleven thousand four hundred and thirty two doors, and she won. It was a rough time to be the youngest woman in Jeff City, but they say she gave back as good as she got. Raising three kids as a single mom she relied on family.
As Jackson County Prosecutor, then State Auditor, Claire was always independent and always working across the aisle to make a difference. Now a grandmother of eleven she’s still the same as our Senator.
Claire McCaskill’s never left Missouri – she takes this story to work with her every day, because we all have a story – and Claire’s fighting to protect it.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D): I’m Claire McCaskill and I approve this message.
“…listen, I’m a Mizzou educated lawyer, but I can keep up. [laughter] And I know what the word shall means in the law. Now I know he went to Yale, I think, or Harvard, one of those, one of those fancy ones. Um, I think they taught him the same thing, shall is shall…” – Senator Claire McCaskill (D) on Josh Hawley (r) – August 17, 2017
We can’t wait for that to appear in a campaign ad.
