MCCASKILL: You know, I come from Missouri. It's what I am. It's who I am. It is what keeps me going. It's what lifts me up. I look at my job as what can I do every day to get something done for the people of Missouri. In every corner of the state – in rural communities, in cities, in suburbs – I've done around 50 town halls in a year and I've tried to go out of my way to go places where I'm not that popular. When I think it's the right thing for Missouri, I go after it. Sometimes I get in trouble because I just won't be quiet. But I'm not gonna apologize for being a Democrat. I tell people the truth about where I stand. I want to do things that matter in people's lives. To me this job is not about holding the office, it's about getting things done for our Missouri families. You can never stop. There's always work to do. It is complicated, it's hard, and I'm not giving up. And I will always be a voice for the state of Missouri.
