WASHINGTON (AP) - Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, will be spending the week of the Democratic National Convention campaigning instead of in Charlotte, North Carolina.
McCaskill is considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year.
She is one of a growing list of Democrats in conservative districts who have decided to avoid the convention, which will be a showcase of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
