Republicans Refuse to Let McCaskill Sidestep Kavanaugh Vote

McCaskill wants to focus on health care, but Hawley is making sure voters remember Kavanaugh

CHESTERFIELD, Mo.—Claire McCaskill wants voters to know she had nothing to do with the gauntlet her Senate colleagues put Brett Kavanaugh through. She voted against his confirmation, she says, but only because of his views on dark money in politics. The senator insists she decided to oppose Kavanaugh before she even knew of the sexual assault allegations against him. She's "not one of those crazy Democrats."
