Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) weighed in on the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh currently roiling the confirmation process, saying that she is “deeply troubled” and wants the matter thoroughly investigated.

McCaskill does not sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, but as a red-state Democrat in an extremely close reelection fight, her vote is still closely watched. She stayed with the Democrats to vote against Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation in 2017.
