VP Pence to MO: Fire Claire

In Springfield this afternoon, Vice President Mike Pence slammed Claire McCaskill for voting against Justice Brett Kavanaugh and standing with her Democrat allies in Washington as they attempted to smear his reputation.

Pence told Missourians, “The Truth is Missouri’s other Senator, Claire McCaskill, was there with the Democrats in the Senate every step of the way. Claire McCaskill supported the Democrats’ search and destroy tactics, and it’s just one more reason why Missouri needs to fire Claire McCaskill and hire Josh Hawley as your next United States Senator.”
