DescriptionMissouri Sen. Claire McCaskill on Tuesday canceled her campaign events for the remainder of the week in order to spend time with her critically ill mother.

McCaskill's 84-year-old mother, Betty Anne McCaskill, was in an intensive care unit of a St. Louis hospital Tuesday after "becoming critically ill," said McCaskill campaign spokeswoman Caitlin Legacki. The campaign did not disclose any further details about her ailments.

McCaskill on Monday had begun what was supposed to be a several day, get-out-the-vote tour across rural Missouri. But she canceled Tuesday's campaign stops in Mount Vernon, Butler and Clinton. McCaskill also canceled the rest of the tour and all other campaign events through the end of the week, Legacki said.
