Bottom Line

Senator Claire McCaskill is a skilled campaigner in a state that has become steadliy more conservative and Republican during her tenure. She’s likely to have a tough time explaining her opposition to the tax cut legislation. The unified Democratic opposition to President Trump’s judicial nominees will also be a burden for McCaskill to carry.
