In 2006, Claire became the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Missouri, winning the seat once held by Harry Truman.

Claire's efforts led to the creation of a new Senate panel charged with contracting oversight. As Chairman, Claire led more than 20 hearings, and launched more than 40 investigations at 22 federal departments and agencies, resulting in nearly 30 instances of misconduct referred to federal investigators during her first Senate term.
