McCaskill Gets a Hand From Veterans' Group

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., is getting some help on television from the national veterans' group, which is taking to the airwaves with a six-figure ad buy touting the senator's support for veterans' issues.

The ad features Iraq war veterans speaking positively about McCaskill.

"When some tried to make cuts to VA hospitals like Truman, where I go, she fought that," says one of the veterans. "She pushed the new GI Bill through, and now I'm earning my degree, here at Mizzou," says another.

The Missouri ad is the first of the cycle for the group, which spent over $15 million last cycle. The ad buy is $200,000 over two weeks in the Kansas City and St. Louis markets.
