From the start, Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo) has been critical of the Obama administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya last September that resulted in the death of an ambassador and three other Americans.

Panetta testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee in what will likely be his final appearance before Congress.
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill says there will be a political price to pay for state legislators who allow the federal government to run the state’s health insurance exchange.

Senator Claire McCaskill is finishing up her statewide “Get Out the Vote” campaign today by making various stops throughout Missouri. One of them was in Columbia this morning, at the Coordinated Campaign Building.
