Sen. McCaskill: Too Many Dems Fighting 'to Run for President'

(NBC News' "Meet the Press")

By    |   Sunday, 29 October 2017 12:44 PM

The ever-crowded – and still-growing – field of Democrats elbowing for position to oppose President Donald Trump in 2020 has created "angst" within the Democratic Party, and voters "want us to quit fighting with each other," Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said Sunday.

"It's hard when we are the minority party, that we have lots of folks that are leaders and want to be leaders," Sen. McCaskill told NBC News "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd. "We have so many people that are trying to position themselves to run for president I think it's hard to say who is the leader, and there's a lot of angst about that."

Sen. McCaskill is considered a moderate Democrat and has expressed an interest in working with President Trump on tax reform for the benefit of her constituents, irrespective of the Democrats' political warfare against the White House.

"I frankly don't worry about any of that," Sen. McCaskill told Todd. "That's not something that concerns me right now."

McCaskill added, amid the political infighting, "we get kind of lost in the weeds."

"There's cultural issues that Donald Trump was, I think, very smart to emphasize that have made it hard sometimes for us to relate," she said.

". . . And the cultural issues divide cities and the rural areas. I've got to figure out a way to knit all that together. And after doing almost 50 town halls, I'll tell you this: They want us to quit fighting with each other. That's what they want."
