U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill makes a stop in Southwest Missouri to speak face-to-face with voters as election day nears.
It was standing room only at a Joplin campaign facility, where McCaskill listened to the concerns of dozens of residents. The senator spoke on topics like the Affordable Care Act, dark money, immigration & border security, and protecting worker’s rights. She emphasized her willingness to work across party lines to make the changes she feels are necessary in policy and political actions.
“We need to quit pointing fingers at each other, and figure out how we can come to the middle. And try to get along better. That’s what I hate about politics right now, I don’t think it’s ever been so divided,” says Sen. Claire McCaskill.
McCaskill is running as a Democrat against Republican Josh Hawley for the Missouri U.S. Senate seat. Libertarian Japheth Campbell is also in the race, along with Jo Crain with the Green Party, and independent Craig O’Dear.
