FILE - In this May 7, 2013 file photo, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. The biggest Republican-leaning money machines are spending dramatically less to help the party ahead of the 2014 congressional elections, a year after big-dollar conservative groups poured millions into unsuccessful campaigns against President Barack Obama and Democratic candidates, and the GOP failed to retake the White House or the Senate. Last year, McCaskill defeated Republican, Rep. Todd Akin, who emerged from a three-way primary only to implode in August after suggesting publicly that female victims of "a legitimate rape" have the biological capacity to prevent pregnancy.
