Missouri senator Claire McCaskill (D.) has worked to distance herself from the anti-Trump resistance, but a San Francisco group is rewarding her for voting with the resistance.

Democracy Action, a group dedicated to “fighting the Trump agenda,” is coordinating with Missouri Democrats to hold a San Francisco phone bank in support of McCaskill, considered to be one of the most vulnerable senators up for reelection this year.

The group says it decided to hold a phone bank for McCaskill after she voted against confirming CIA director Gina Haspel, who was strongly opposed by resistance groups.

“Senator Claire McCaskill is the most vulnerable Democrat in the Senate,” the group wrote on Facebook. “That didn’t stop her from bravely voting NO on the confirmation of Gina Haspel as CIA director. Courageous senators like Claire deserve our support!”

The phone bank event is scheduled for Sunday in San Francisco, according to the Eventbrite invite. Democracy Action says it is working with the Missouri Democratic Party’s Coordinated Campaign “to help identify and mobilize Senator Claire McCaskill supporters for the November elections.”


Neither the Missouri Democratic Party nor the McCaskill campaign responded to requests for comment on working with Democracy Action, which maintains a calendar of resistance events held in the San Francisco area.
