The democrat answered questions for about an hour on a variety of issues in Hillsboro. Guests put questions into a fishbowl, and someone drew the cards at random.

Senator McCaskill says she wants to tell Missourians that it’s important to find middle ground, not to be stubborn on issues

“Hopefully the progressives in the audience heard my plea for moderation, that moderates matter, that’s how you get things done in Washington, you find compromises, I’m not going to shy away from calling myself a moderate,” McCaskill said.

McCaskill will hold a forum at Park University in Parkville Thursday. That will take place at 2:30 p.m. at the Graham Tyler Memorial Chapel on the campus.

Below is her schedule for Thursday.
