Claire McCaskill is as establishment Democrat as you get which is the reason she’s trailing Hawley despite raising 4 times more than him. In all fairness McCaskill was losing to the Republican challenger by 7-8 points before a challenger was even announced. More and more voters are finding Claire McCaskill problematic, especially blacks and progressives, so much so they will not vote for her under any circumstances. Claire McCaskill may not be a Kamala Harris or Dick Durbin, but Nov 6 she’s about to be Hillary Clinton.
Why Claire McCaskill is no Kamala Harris or Dick Durbin
It’s a given that U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill is no Kamala Harris or Cory Booker or even Dick Durbin. That’s because Missouri is no California or New Jersey or Illinois.
