Missouri Senator visits biofuel plants on primary day


In Missouri, Senator Claire McCaskill (D) visited biofuel plants on the state’s primary election day. She stopped at MidAmerica Biofuels as well as other biofuel plants in Missouri to thank supporters for her 12 years in the Senate. McCaskill is running against several other Democratic candidates on the primary ballot but it is assumed she will again be the party’s nominee and thus will run against presumed Republican opponent, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley.

McCaskill has been “focusing on farmers and farm-related businesses like this biofuel plant, highlighting concerns about the president’s tariffs, saying recent drops in soybean prices have resulted in nearly $680 million in lost jobs, wages, and tax revenue for Missouri,” according to Fox News.
