McCaskill: Trump Campaigning Against Me Helps My Chances in November

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) is welcoming opposition from President Trump this fall in a new interview published this weekend by KBIA.

“And frankly, it probably will help that I think Donald Trump will be here every 10 minutes campaigning for someone who has not allowed one inch of daylight between him and the president,” McCaskill told KBIA.

Trump is supporting Attorney General Josh Hawley (R-MO) in his campaign against McCaskill, one of the top races in the country.

McCaskill’s quote about Trump appears to contradict her posture throughout much of the interview, though, since she admits she has to “do everything right” to win in November.

“When you’re in a state that voted for the Republican candidate by almost 20 points, you’ve gotta do everything right as a Democrat,” McCaskill said at another point in the interview. “In order for me to win this campaign, honestly … I gotta do all of it perfectly.”

Regardless of how McCaskill actually feels, it’s a bold statement to say the president’s opposition will help her in the fall – especially when, as she admits, Trump beat Clinton “by almost 20 points” in Missouri.
