Skip to comments.Sens. seek Obama boost on campaign trail

President Obama kicks off what might be called his "Save the Senate" tour this week, heading west to campaign for two embattled Democrats trailing badly against Republican challengers - including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada.
With high-profile Democrats already bailing out of re-election campaigns - Sen. Evan Bayh's decision on Monday to drop out of the race in Indiana brings the number of retirees to five - Mr. Obama is putting his popularity and fundraising prowess on the line as he tries to help his party hold the majority in the Senate.
Local Republicans are salivating at the prospect of Mr. Obama dropping into town to campaign for their opponents.
"The hardworking families in Nevada see right through any type of political dog-and-pony shows taking place this week in Las Vegas," said former state Sen. Sue Lowden, a Republican running for Mr. Reid's seat. "No amount of campaign cash will buy back the trust of voters and convince them that he deserves another six years."
Even Democratic strategists say a visit by the president - whose poll numbers have plummeted since taking office - carries risks for his fellow Democrats.

Even better news than Bayh’s retirement.
Keep it up, you Kenyan fraud, your help in taking the leftists down is much appreciated.

Obama and his dumb azzed policies are what is killing them.
His showing up to campaign for them can only hurt ,except in overwhelmingly black areas.
Most of the Independent whites who voted Obama have wised up.
I love it when He campaigns for others, because He tends to make off-teleprompter statements.
They should have preserved Teddy like Lennin, and used him instead....do it for TED!
