As the 2018 midterm elections ebb ever-closer, the Senate map across the country appears to be shifting further and further red. In fact, while Democrats look to hold onto their Senate seats in Washington, California, New Mexico, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and a number of eastern states, Republicans look to hold onto all 51 of their current seats, plus they look to pick up and hold West Virginia, Indiana, Tennessee, Florida, Missouri, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, North Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Utah, Mississippi, Montana, and possibly even Michigan and New Jersey. In all, it would be a net gain of 8 seats for the Republicans, and set up a 59/41 Republican controlled Senate.
Now in Missouri, after Claire McCaskill got caught lying to the Missouri voters RED HANDED by Project Veritas, Claire is now down in the polls, and on a path to losing her seat to Josh Hawley. She has already tried smear campaigns, with the help of the Senate Majority PAC (Political Action Committee). Now, she is resorting to distancing herself from the Democrat Party to the point of saying…
“I’m not one of those ‘crazy’ Democrats”
However, that must be a recent development, since she…
- voted for Obamacare
- voted for the Iran nuclear deal
- voted against the succeeding tax reform bill
- voted against both Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh
- backed Harry Reid’s nuclear option in 2013.
- The first person in 2008 to endorse Barack Obama
- One of the first to endorse Hillary Clinton in 2016.
- Supports Missouri’s Amendment 1 ‘Clean Missouri’ that strips the voice of voters in future elections.
In fact, Claire McCaskill’s voting record and her actions make her indistinguishable from the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Never-the-less, she is trying to convince Missouri constituents to draw an false distinction between herself and her party leadership like Chuck Schumer, despite they have voted identically 80% of the time, and on everything except:

Now, McCaskill is claiming that she is “not one of those ‘crazy Democrats”:

McCaskill campaign’s closing pitch: She’s ‘not one of those crazy Democrats’
Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill’s campaign is trying to persuade Missouri voters that she is not “one of those crazy Democrats,” with a radio ad airing during the final stretch of her heated…
McCaskill’s campaign appears to be doubling down on that message in the campaign’s final days, despite getting blow-back from her fellow Democrats and the DNC. In fact, in a new television ad released Tuesday by McCaskill’s campaign, it features a veteran who supports McCaskill stating
“you don’t have to like her,” and then attacking Republicans and praising Claire. He then goes on to say…
“I don’t always agree with Claire McCaskill, but she works hard, fighting against those tariffs, doing all those town halls. Claire’s not afraid to stand up against her own party, and Claire’s not one of those crazy Democrats. She works right in the middle and finds compromise.”
Ironically, McCaskill is not in the middle, but instead a left-wing liberal partisan with a liberal partisan record. However, now that it is election time, Claire McCaskill tries to convince Missouri voters to ignore her voting record, ignore her former comments, ignore the project veritas videos that expose her fraud. Yes, an election year appears to be the magic time when Claire is no longer Claire, and she is a conservative Democrat. It is almost like a Dr. Jeckyl and Mrs. Hyde scenario, which could be the reason so many Missouri voters are apparently jumping ship and looking to support Josh Hawley, with new polling numbers showing him with a 7 point lead, and only 11 days to go until election day….
NEW: @HawleyMO leads @clairecmc by 7 points in closely watched #MOSEN, according to a fresh poll conducted for the challenger’s campaign.https://washex.am/2D2nhNK
