"If you want change, if you're unhappy with the direction of this country, the candidate of change is the guy you're looking at," McConnell told an audience at a Chamber of Commerce lunch here.

(CNN) – Since those violent protests in the city of Ferguson, where demonstrators were pitted against heavily armed police, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, has been working on the issue of police militarization.
