Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has struck again. This time he’s caught Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) on candid camera admitting that she’s hiding a gun-grabbing agenda. Her position isn’t all that surprising coming from the left, but considering that McCaskill portrays herself as a “moderate” before Missouri voters, it’s a bit of a problem. And the only thing preventing a total ban of high-capacity magazines and AR-15s is control of the House. More alarming still are the remarks of a staffer caught on camera saying that “. . . a semi-automatic rifle ban is more so what she would support.” This is what we refer to as an October surprise, and O’Keefe may have just ensured that the GOP actually gains seats in the U.S. Senate.

Incumbent Democratic senator Claire McCaskill is locked in a tight re-election battle with Republican challenger Josh Hawley, with both candidates slugging it out in a race becoming more and more personal the closer we get to election day.
McCaskill has tried to portray herself as a “moderate” Democrat, in tune with Missouri voters on most issues, while trying to hide some of her more radical views. This became clear when Project Vertias’s James O’Keefe unleashed his hidden cameras on staffers for McCaskill who let slip that the senator is concealing an anti-gun agenda.
MCCASKILL: “Well if we elect enough Democrats we’ll get some gun safety stuff done. They won’t let us vote on it, we’ve got 60 votes for a number of measures that would help with gun safety, but McConnell won’t let ’em come to the floor.”
JOURNALIST: “Like bump stocks, ARs and high capacity mags…?”
