The Chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party was in Hannibal Thursday to talk about Senator Claire McCaskill’s record as an advocate for the state’s veterans.

Chairman Stephan Webber was at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center as part of the “Claire Fights for Vets” tour.

Webber says Missouri’s senior senator has a strong record of advocating for the state’s service members.

Also speaking to the gathering was Shelby County farmer Winston Simpson, who talked about how Claire McCaskill went to bat for his son, who served in the Marine Corps in Iraq.
