We always knew this was the truth, but McCaskill played the press and Missourians for fools by claiming she was actually reviewing Judge Kavanaugh’s record before making her decision to vote “no.” The reality is that she was going to vote no before the President even named a nominee.
Claire McCaskill is just another Washington liberal. She’s on the exact same page as Chuck Schumer and their left-wing colleagues. For them, this election is about taking back control of the Senate to block conservative judges from the bench.
McCaskill Became ‘Physically Ill’ When She Learned of SCOTUS Opening
Washington Free Beacon | Brent Scher | Sept. 28, 2018
Missouri senator Claire McCaskill (D.) has presented herself as a centrist who gave serious consideration to Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, but comments she made to a group of voters just after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement indicate otherwise […]
“I can’t remember how many elections … I’ve said, ‘This is the most important election in our lives’ or ‘you know the Supreme Court really matters,'” she said. “It’s like the little boy who cried wolf. I’m not sure that everybody ever really believed that, maybe they will now.”
“We really have to bear down and deliver the Senate for the Democratic Party,” she said. “That won’t happen if I don’t win. I have to win for that to happen.”
McCaskill’s emphasis on how important the Court should be to voters is inconsistent with her public comments during the nomination process. Just last week she told the New York Times she “never thought the court issue was going to be a determining factor in this election.”
