Supporters of Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill gathered in Hannibal tonight to help support her campaign.
McCaskill showed up to personally thank everyone for all their hard work to try to gather more votes.
Because of comments made by Republican challenger Todd Akin, this race has focused quite a bit on women's issues, and female voters will have a big say in how this race is decided.
Well every vote's important. We are just trying tonight across the state to emphasize women coming in as volunteers and calling other women. We think people to people contact is more powerful than commercials," said Senator McCaskill.
Two polling firms, Rasmussen Reports and Public Policy Polling, both show McCaskill with a six point lead over Akin in the Senate race.
