Club for Growth targets Claire McCaskill with hard-hitting ad about husband's past

David M. Drucker, Washington Examiner

The Club for Growth raises the specter of past domestic violence accusations against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill's husband in new hard-hitting television advertisement running statewide in Missouri. In a departure for the club, whose advertising typically focuses on fiscal issues, it is attempting to undercut McCaskill's support among women with an attack tying her voting record in Congress to abuse allegations leveled against her husband, Joseph Shepard, by his ex-wife.
