Residents question McCaskill during Missouri town halls

ASHLAND, Mo. (AP) — Missouri residents are questioning U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill during town halls.

More than 100 people peppered the Democrat with questions during an evening town hall Wednesday in Ashland, Missouri.

She received a generally friendly response from a group mostly of supporters who applauded her. Some of her Republican colleagues have been met with angry responses at town halls in reaction to President Donald Trump’s early agenda.

Several opponents with the Missouri Republican Party held signs criticizing her for saying that she’d never received a call from or spoken to the Russian ambassador. She later backed off that.

A lot of the questions centered on former President Barack Obama’s health care law and Republican efforts to repeal and replace it.

McCaskill doesn’t support the latest version of the proposed replacement.
