Biden Stumping With McCaskill Next Month

June 29, 2012

For the first time this cycle, Vice President Joe Biden will join Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., at a fundraiser, the senator's campaign announced on Friday. The event will be held in Kansas City on July 9.

"It's always a pleasure to welcome Vice President Joe Biden to the great State of Missouri and I am humbled by his support for my re-election campaign," said McCaskill.

McCaskill, who is running in a state President Obama is unlikely to carry in November, has opted to skip the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte. Yet she's dismissed suggestions that she is distancing herself from the president. She told National Journal earlier this week that she is "frustrated" the president isn't stumping with Missouri. Biden's appearance is a sign she is not distancing herself from the administration entirely.

Whatever McCaskill does, Republicans will continue to tie her to Obama. There is enough footage of the two of them to fill TV ad after TV ad even if she does not appear alongside the president at all before November. So enlisting the fundraising help of Biden or Obama is not a bad idea for McCaskill, who is one of the cycle's most vulnerable incumbents.
