Democratic Party

Democratic U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill is taking heat from the progressive wing of her party for a radio ad she’s running in her bid for reelection that refers to “crazy Democrats”. State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal of University City said McCaskill should clarify for those who might vote for her exactly who “crazy Democrats” are.

 

 

State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal of University City says she knows people who are troubled by the phrase and thinks McCaskill owes them an explanation.

 

 

McCaskill is in a tight race against Republican challenger Josh Hawley in November’s election and is campaigning as a moderate willing to break with her party.
