McCaskill Explains Her Absence from Obama's St. Louis Fundraiser
|Damned if you do, damned if you dont, says McCaskill.|
Her absence has political junkies wondering if the senator, who was an early champion of Obama's first presidential campaign, will be as big of a supporter of him this time around. Or, is she intentionally trying to distance herself from the president?
A tweet from the senator this morning suggests that it's the campaign system -- not the president -- that kept her away from yesterday's fundraisers. Tickets for the second of the two events last night went for $25,000 a pop.
Tweeted McCaskill: "If I'd gone to Pres' fundraiser in STL opponents would say that I'd rather hobnob w/big donors than do my job."
McCaskill signed off the tweet with the hashtag #damnedifudodamnedifudont.
