WASHINGTON – Claire McCaskill will officially begin her second term as Missouri’s senior U.S. Senator , when she will be accompanied to the Senate chamber by fellow Missouri Senator Roy Blunt, and former Missouri Senator Jean Carnahan, to take the oath of office.
McCaskill was first elected to the Senate in 2006, and since then, has carved an independent path, representing Missouri as a mainstream moderate fighting to expand job opportunities, cut wasteful spending, reduce the national debt, and strengthen accountability in government. She was resoundingly reelected this past November, winning her race by more than 15 percentage points—the biggest margin for a Missouri Senate candidate in nearly two decades—and earning a larger number of votes than any other candidate in Missouri in 2012.
McCaskill, a former state legislator, Jackson County Prosecutor, and Missouri State Auditor, will take the oath of office from Vice President Joe Biden at noon .
