Missouri Sen. McCaskill Presses InBev CEO On Anheuser-Busch Deal: "Not Going To Happen"

Posted: Updated:

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill offered a Bud Light and a smile to InBev Chief Executive Officer Carlos Brito on Tuesday, while telling him she would do everything she could to stop his company from buying Anheuser-Busch Cos.

Brito requested the meeting with the Democratic lawmaker and other members of Missouri's delegation to reassure them about his company's proposal to buy the St. Louis-based beer giant.

"They basically came to try to get me on board, so to speak," McCaskill told reporters after the half-hour meeting in her Capitol Hill office. "I said, 'Not going to happen.'"
