Claire McCaskill: I wouldn't invite Obama to campaign with me

“I’m try to be really candid and honest on this show,” she said. “The president’s numbers are not strong in my state or in Arkansas or Louisiana or in North Carolina. He did not win those states when he ran for reelection in 2012.”

“But that doesn’t mean that you can’t win,” she continued. “These candidates in those states are strong candidates. They have been an independent voice for their states. They know how to stay on offense and talk about the Republicans shutting down the government, and the Republicans marginalizing great, hard working people who come to this country wanting nothing more than be a part of the American dream.”
