In another indication of the importance of Missouri’s U.S. Senate race, Senate candidate Claire McCaskill has delivered the weekly Democratic Radio Address. McCaskill’s speech is on the stem cell research legislation expected to be voted on in the Senate next week. In her address, McCaskill says, “This stem cell legislation will hold up the light of hope for those who suffer and their families.” McCaskill acknowledges the vote will be close, adding that if it passes, President Bush could use his veto pen for the first time in his presidency. She says such a veto would be tantamount to, “saying no to saving lives.” McCaskill expresses her belief that scientific research on stem cells holds the key to curing such diseases as diabetes and sickle cell anemia, and holds promise to cure spinal cord injuries.
