JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, of Missouri, says she doesn’t support Sen. Harry Reid as the Senate minority leader.
McCaskill said Thursday that she believes the recent election results show voters want change in Washington and that must begin with a change in leadership.
Reid, of Nevada, currently is the Senate majority leader but will become the minority leader when the new congressional term begins in January. Democrats lost control of the Senate to Republicans in the Nov. 4 elections.
Republicans also fared well in McCaskill’s home state, picking up seats in both the state House and Senate despite McCaskill’s efforts to aid local races by contributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Missouri Democratic Party.
Many Republicans across the country campaigned against Reid and President Barack Obama’s policies.
