George Will: Obama Made a Mistake by Linking Michelle Nunn with Harry Reid
Will’s Take: Obama Made a Mistake by Linking Michelle Nunn with Harry Reid (National Review Online)
On Thursday’s Special Report, George Will criticized President Obama’s decision to link a potential victory by Georgia Senate candidate Michelle Nunn to a Democratically controlled Senate.
“It’s just folly to go on radio and say a vote for Michelle Nunn is a vote for Harry Reid,” Will said. “I don’t think that’s the message they want to hear down there.”
The president’s decision didn’t appear to be aimed at attracting new voters, Will noted, but at mobilizing Democrats to go out and vote. The race in solidly Republican Georgia might be a surprise, Will said: Michelle Nunn’s father won a Senate seat in the state when the odds were stacked against him, too.
