Claire McCaskill Steals Hillary Clinton’s ‘Fighting for You’ Slogan

Democratic senator Claire McCaskill kicked off a "Fighting for You" tour across Missouri on Monday. Her Republican opponent Josh Hawley says the slogan was lifted from Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 presidential campaign.

The Clinton campaign failed to truly embrace a slogan, but "Fighting for You" was one of the first it ever trotted out, using it in its first national campaign ad in 2015. Hawley made fun of McCaskill for recycling the slogan used by Clinton, who lost in Missouri by nearly 20 percentage points.

McCaskill became the first senator to endorse Clinton back in 2013, a historically early presidential endorsement. Her campaign has worked to distance McCaskill from Clinton during the current campaign given Clinton's unpopularity in Missouri.

McCaskill is considered to be one of the most vulnerable senators running for reelection.
