Vice-President Pence Slams McCaskill Over Tax Cuts, Gorsuch During K.C. Visit

Vice-President Mike Pence asked a crowd in Kansas City to pressure McCaskill to vote for President Donald Trump's latest Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Vice President Mike Pence is criticizing Senator Claire McCaskill as she campaigns for re-election.

At an event in Kansas City Wednesday, Pence laid into McCaskill for voting against tax cuts last year. He also slammed her for voting against Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch's confirmation.

McCaskill's campaign spokesman Eric Mee in a statement to The Associated Press said instead of attacking her, Pence should explain why tax changes gave pharmaceutical companies a "massive windfall."

Pence asked the crowd of more than 550 people to pressure McCaskill to vote for President Donald Trump's latest Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Mee says McCaskill will weigh Kavanaugh's qualifications as she considers his nomination.

Trump is backing McCaskill's front-runner Republican challenger, Attorney General Josh Hawley.
