McCaskill to Skip Democratic National Convention
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill says she will not attend this summer’s Democratic National Convention. McCaskill says she’ll spend the week campaigning in Missouri. Most political observers say McCaskill’s seat is one of the Democrats most vulnerable in the November general election. McCaskill’s decision is notable because she played an early and prominent role in Obama's 2008 campaign, endorsing him during that primary with then Sen. Hillary Clinton.
