Hawley and McCaskill Hold First Debate

The first debate between Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill and Republican Josh Hawley is now in the books.

The debate took place last (Friday) night in suburban St. Louis and was hosted by the Missouri Press Association.

During the debate Hawley attempted to paint McCaskill as another Washington liberal.

McCaskill said she supports President Trump when it benefits Missouri and opposes him when it does not.

The race is among the nation’s most closely watched, with control of the Senate possibly at stake. Poll show the race a toss up.
