McCaskill Brags About Her Voting Record With Trump; Will She Support Kavanaugh?

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) wants her constituents to know she has voted for “almost eighty percent of President Trump’s nominees.”

From Dr. Brian Calfano’s interview with McCaskill, published in Ozarks First:

MCCASKILL: “Well I’m going to treat this nomination [of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court] like I have all of the nominations which means I’m going to look at his record, I’m going to make an evaluation over all of his writings in his speeches, obviously I’ve had the opportunity to visit with him. I have voted for almost eighty percent of President Trump’s nominees so I am obviously willing to vote for one of President Trump’s nominees, I voted for many of his cabinet members, but I make each decision on individual basis and so it is obviously too early for me to make a determination as to whether or not he… I’m going to be looking to see if he’s going to take the side of corporations or the little guy. I’m going to be looking to see if he’ll protect the protections we have against discrimination against people that have been skipped over in the Affordable Care Act. I’m going to be looking at how he is treated First Amendment claims I’m very much supportive of the First Amendment so those are some of the things I’m going to take a look at.”

Of course, McCaskill did not disclose that she voted against then-Judge Neil Gorsuch, the other Trump nominee to the Supreme Court, last year.

Surely, Missouri voters want to know where McCaskill stands on Kavanaugh. She’s holding off the scrutiny by pointing out her voting record ‘with’ Trump’s nominees, but voters aren’t likely to cut her any slack if she votes against a second Supreme Court justice.
