On Monday July 9, Vice President Joe Biden will join Sen. Claire McCaskill in Kansas City for a fundraising event to benefit McCaskill Senate Victory 2012.
“It's always a pleasure to welcome Vice President Joe Biden to the great State of Missouri and I am humbled by his support for my re-election campaign,” said McCaskill. “Whether it was during our time together in the Senate or over the past four years, Vice President Biden has been a good friend and a strong advocate for middle class families across America. Like me, Vice President Biden has always worked to achieve commonsense, compromise solutions to the challenges we face and it's an honor that he's willing to come to Kansas City and help my campaign.”
This event will be the first time Vice President Biden has joined Claire in Missouri during her re-election campaign. Vice President Biden will be able to help present the choice Missourians have in November between a Senator, like Claire, who has fought tirelessly for Missouri's middle class families and the three extreme Republican candidates who are competing to be a rubberstamp vote for special interests in Washington.
The event will be hosted at a private residence.
