Ad - Missouri - Rising - Washington - Part

The 30-second ad from Missouri Rising, titled "Washington," is part of a seven-figure buy this month highlighting how McCaskill has grown increasingly out-of-touch with Missouri during her 30 years in politics.

"Now, McCaskill is misleading us, claiming to be on a RV tour but using a private plane between stops."

Such websites uses a different type of data transmission to make tracking information publicly available.
