Spencer Toder campaign
"When I think about what I want in a senator, I want someone who can do a lot with a little and is focusing solely on making the lives of Missourians better. So that's what we've been focused on," U.S. Senate candidate Spencer Toder told Steve Kraske.

U.S. Senate candidate Spencer Toder is taking an uncommon approach to campaigning. He shares why he thinks his actions before the primaries will appeal to voters.

Spencer Toder isn't focused on campaign ads or calling the wealthy asking for their support. Instead, the candidate for U.S. Senate has focused his campaign on making positive change in the lives of everyday Missourians.

"It's about sending someone to Washington who doesn't sit around talking about what they're going to do in the future, but what they're going to do right now," Toder said.

The Democratic candidate shared why he'd abolish the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court. He also gave his take on key issues, including abortion and climate change.
