Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill was back on the campaign trail Wednesday, attacking Republican Congressman Akin for his stance on the school lunch program. But she also used the time to talk about her mother, who passed away earlier this week.
It was McCaskill’s first public appearance since the passing of her mother, Betty Anne.
In previous campaigns, the Senator would often bring her mother up on the stump.
McCaskill says it’s been a “tumultuous time.”
“Part of me feels a little lost,” McCaskill said.
