JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – The leader of a Muslim advocacy group is decrying an attack ad against Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill.
The Stars & Stripes Forever PAC ad says Democrats such as McCaskill support teaching about Islam in school and urges listeners to vote against her in November.
McCaskill is up for re-election against Republican Josh Hawley.
Council on American-Islamic Relations Missouri chapter Executive Director Faizan Syed says the ad is “blatantly Islamophobic.”
