McCaskill Bemoans That ‘Everything’ is About the Supreme Court Now

The Missouri senator seemed none too happy that Attorney General Josh Hawley (R-MO) is focused like a laser on the Supreme Court battle.

McCaskill Bemoans That ‘Everything’ is About the Supreme Court Now

The Supreme Court battle has become one of the most significant, if not the most significant, issue in most U.S. Senate races across the country since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in June.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) doesn’t like that everyone’s talking about it.

According to Politico, McCaskill complained this week that her opponent, Attorney General Josh Hawley (R-MO), is “comfortable, talking about everything that is the Supreme Court.”

The Supreme Court vacancy isn’t McCaskill’s favorite topic. She’s rather talk about her bipartisan legislative successes and thrash Hawley’s lawsuit against Obamacare. The high court battle is right in her opponent’s sweet spot — Hawley even met his wife, Erin, while both were clerking for Roberts.

“This is obviously some place he feels comfortable, talking about everything that is the Supreme Court,” she said. But “Look at the decisions that have to be made week in and week out [in the Senate], this is a very small percentage of the workload. There is a whole lot of other stuff that Missourians have no idea where he stands. None.”

As NTK Network has noted, it seems like McCaskill would prefer to stay silent on the new defining issue of the midterm elections.
