SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Missouri Democratic Party was in Springfield Tuesday afternoon hosting an event for Veterans who support Senator Claire McCaskill.

Chairman of the party, Stephen Webber, is a Marine Corps. Veterans who says McCaskill has always fought for service members’ rights as a politician which includes expanding education benefits and strengthening the VA.
Webber says, “Claire McCaskill has a proven track record of standing up for veterans of getting things done, of working in a bipartisan fashion for what’s best for Missouri. And Josh Hawley just doesn’t have the experience. He doesn’t have the policy, chops. He hasn’t stood up against his own party when it comes to protecting veterans. So that’s a very clear distinction and that’s why we are here today.”

Three other Veterans attended the event, advocating for Senator McCaskill.
