Republicans Crowd Senate Field in Missouri

Republicans are feeling more confident about unseating Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill thanks to some recent ethics issues. Roll Call Politics rates this race as a Tossup.

McCaskill has sought to highlight her independence from the national party, but Republicans will continue to bring up her votes in favor of big-ticket items such as the economic stimulus and health care.

“Obama is clearly going to lose Missouri, regardless of who his opponent is,” one GOP strategist said. “For her to overcome him — she’s got a ceiling now against almost any Republican.”
