KANSAS CITY, Mo. - U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill held a campaign event with the LGBTQ community at Bistro 303 in Kansas City on Friday.


The Missouri Democrat reminded the enthusiastic crowd that she is running for re-election against Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley in a state Republican President Donald Trump won by nearly 19 points in 2016, and that equality is on the ballot, November 6th.


"There is an awful lot on the ballot besides my name and Josh Hawley's name; Marriage Equality is on the ballot," said McCaskill. "And I mean that figuratively because of the differences between my view of that issue and my opponent's view of that issue."


During Thursday's final Missouri Senate debate, Hawley said he thought the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision legalizing same-sex marriage was wrongly decided and refused to say whether he supported the Missouri Nondiscrimination Act (MONA), which would make it illegal to deny employment, housing, and public accommodation to LGBTQ Missourians.
