I mean, the truth is the Democratic Party's gone further to the left than ever before -- and you need to look only at Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill,” Pence told a crowd of more than 500 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown, according to a transcript released by the White House.
“Every single Democrat in Congress voted against President Trump’s tax cuts.
When it came time to cut your taxes, Sen. Claire McCaskill voted no,” Pence said, pointing out that she also voted “no” on bills that would have repealed ObamaCare and barred Planned Parenthood and so-called “sanctuary cities” from receiving federal money.
The vice president went on to pressure McCaskill to support President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, noting that she sided with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch and voted no as well.
“The choice before Sen. Claire McCaskill is whether she's going to stand with [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer and her obstructionist party or whether she's going to stand with the people of Missouri and support the most qualified and most deserving nominee to the Supreme Court," he said.
