After weeks of focusing on her image as a moderate Democrat who isn't afraid of compromise, Senator Claire McCaskill stepped up the attack on her opponent in November's Election, Congressman Todd Akin.
In a speech to Democrats in Callaway County, the Senator touched on a variety of issues to incite Democratic voters. One topic that garnered the most applause (and laughter) from the audience was student loans.
Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill has been on the attack against her Republican opponent, criticizing Congressman Akin for controversial comments he’s made. But the comments she's attacking are not related to abortion.
So far, McCaskill has avoided attacking Congressman Akin for his comments on “legitimate rape,” which would force her to discuss her stance on the touchy issue of abortion. Instead, she’s attacking him for his comments on student loans.
