The gem was in my P.O. Box today. Basically blaming McCaskill for a problem that she has nothing to do with based on lies.

It is from "One Nation" PAC, which is:
One Nation is a dark money group run by Karl Rove's top operatives who run Crossroads GPS and American Crossroads.[1] According to the organization's website "One Nation is a 501(c)(4) organization that will utilize paid communications, public opinion research and grassroots-level advocacy to shape attitudes on major issues and mobilize citizens to take action by contacting and interacting with policymakers in Washington."[2]
https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/One_Nation

The bill they refer to isn't out of committee yet. https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-con ... -bill/2577

I looked and couldn't find a press release on the day they cite or one about this bill. https://www.mccaskill.senate.gov/media- ... s-releases

This is the news article they cite, which doesn't mention McCaskill but is pretty much a Hawley press release about his attempts to do something about it. https://www.news-leader.com/story/news/ ... 716133002/

In a spoiler for bandwidth.

McCaskill by almost 5% with 24% reporting.
U.S. Senate ›
Candidate Party Votes Pct.
Claire McCaskill* Democrat 356,053 50.9%
Josh Hawley Republican 321,716 46.0
Craig O'Dear Independent 9,814 1.4
Others 11,793 1.7

699,376 votes, 24% reporting (771 of 3,256 precincts)
All the "liberal" initiatives are winning too (anti-gerrymandering/ethics, medical weed, and minimum wage).

edit:

That took a bad turn rather quickly
U.S. Senate ›

I think this election confirms my theory that people in Missouri aren't any more conservative now than they were before 2008 when Missouri was the almost perfect example of a bellwether state.

The state votes for the liberal option on initiatives 60% to 40%, more or less. Against Right to Work in August and in this election for medical weed, for the minimum wage, and against gerrymandering (which the Republican's really, really don't like).

But of those 60% who ought to be Democrats, around 15% vote Republican. Why? Because Barack Obama is black and they are racists, that's why. After Obama (and Ferguson), Democrats equal black people and it doesn't matter if the Republican's want to bust the unions, pay them $6 and take away their health insurance, that 15% who vote for the Minimum Wage and against Right to Work aren't going to vote for a Democrat no matter what.
