Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill is up for a heated senate battle this year, and she is getting off to a quick start by launching her first television ad.
Called “From Here,” the Democratic incumbent focuses on “outside” special interest groups wanting to get her out of office because of her dedication to preserving Medicare.
Saying she will protect Medicare is a good move for McCaskill. When the Senate was mulling cutting social safety net programs like Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare in order to reduce the debt, Missouri responded overwhelmingly against putting those programs on the table.
It seems that McCaskill not only got the message, but has added it to her campaign repertoire.
