Senator Claire McCaskill (D) – in Warrensburg – October 8, 2018.

This morning Senator Claire McCaskill (D) stopped in Warrensburg to greet and speak with around fifty campaign volunteers at the local Democratic party coordinated campaign headqurters.

“…This is an extraordinary mid-term election. And I will say this about all of the controversy and emotion surrounding the [Brett] Kavanaugh [U.S. Supreme Court] nomination. It has never been more important that we have people in the United States Senate that are willing to compromise and find common ground. That we are willing to send people to Washington who are not ashamed to say, that I like to be in the middle, and pull people in from the ends, and find ways that we can actually get things done [applause]…”

“…I think at the end of the day what a majority of Missourians want is an honest broker for problem solving…He [Josh Hawley] doesn’t spend much time talking about his beliefs, but we know he was for ‘right to work for less’ against the wishes of most Missourians…That probably has something to do with the fact that the man who financed his campaign for attorney general, spent over four million dollars on his campaign for attorney general, just wrote the check, almost eighty percent of the money he raised for attorney general, that is the father of the ‘right to work for less’ movement in Missouri…”
