Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, who is up for reelection in Missouri in November, said Wednesday that it would be “terrific” if former President Barack Obama campaigned across the country this year.

McCaskill told reporters in Kansas City that she does not know whether Obama will agree to campaign for anyone, but then encouraged him to do so.

“I think it would be terrific if he worked and campaigned around the country for a variety of candidates,” she said, according to the Kansas City Star. “If he wants to come here and campaign, I would never turn down a previous president.”

McCaskill’s comments came after reports publicized that Obama will headline a Beverly Hills fundraiser for McCaskill in May.

“He offered and this works for his schedule. And I think whenever a former president offers to help you, it’s important to say yes,” McCaskill said.

The senator is fighting for reelection in a state that President Donald Trump carried by 19 points in 2016.

McCaskill’s main Republican challenger, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, has attacked McCaskill for her perceived closeness to Obama.
