McCaskill: I Wouldn’t Campaign With Obama (Washington Free Beacon)

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) said Tuesday she would not campaign with President Obama if she faced re-election this year on Morning Joe.

“I mean, I try to be really candid and honest on this show,” she said. “The president’s numbers are not strong in my state or in Arkansas or Louisiana or North Carolina. He did not win those states when he ran for re-election in 2012, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t win.”

Vulnerable Democrats like Sens. Kay Hagan in North Carolina, Mark Begich in Alaska, Mark Pryor in Arkansas and Mary Landrieu in Louisiana are among those fighting for re-election in 2014 in states that Obama lost in 2012.
