Claire McCaskill supporters stand outside the Holiday Inn Executive Center waiting for McCaskill to arrive for the senatorial debate Sept. 21. "We are here to support Claire inside and out," said Natalie Hampton, a McCaskill supporter. Members of the small crowd came out early to the morning debate to hold signs and show their backing for McCaskill before she entered the venue, but were not allowed to bring the signs into the debate room.
