McCaskill under fire for Beverly with Obama

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill is getting hammered in a new web ad for holding a campaign fundraiser with former President Barack Obama in Beverly Hills.

In the ad, her likely Republican rival, Attorney General Josh Hawley, labeled her a “hypocrite” for claiming she’s not part of the Democratic Party establishment and then flying to Beverly Hills to benefit from the first fundraiser hosted by Mr. Obama this election cycle.

The ad went up within hours of news that Mrs. McCaskill, Missouri Democrat, was teaming up with Mr. Obama.

Mrs. McCaskill is among the most vulnerable Senate Democrats. She’s running in a state that President Trump easily won in 2016.

She told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that she believed the fundraiser was also for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
