Obama to Stump for Reid (Reid Toast)
CQ Politics ^ | January 20, 2010 9:14 PM | Keith Koffler

Posted on 01/21/2010 1:37:17 PM PST by Red Steel

President Obama will appear with politically embattled Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in Las Vegas next month, according to a White House official.

While it is not clear whether the appearance will be overtly political, any appearance by the president in Reid's home state is likely to be seen as an effort to buck up Reid's re-election effort.

Reid faces a difficult race and trails potential Republican challengers in some recent polls.

CQ Politics rates the general election race as a Tossup.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D -NY) Hillary’s replacement is very vulnerable.

Don’t you think Dingy Harry is “toast” no vulnerable?

Don't know enough (read I don't know jack) about who he is running against. If we run a decent candidate then yes i would move him from Vulnerable to Toast.

As for Burris here in Illinois he is beyond toast. Even Blago would have a better chance of winning that seat than he would. The problem is that his toastiness is so obvious that he is unlikely to survive the primary next month. So with a different candidate they may be able to hold that seat. Especially since Kirk (the most likely GOP candidate) is a Cap -n- Tax supporting Uber RINO. I don't see him getting the kind of Tea Party support he would need to win in Illinois. But if we get a good GOP candidate for Governor (Blago has tarnished Dem brand for that office a bit) we might just drag him across the line.

Nice list, but Dorgan has already bailed and Bennet is definitely vulnerable as well.

From link at post #53:

-snip-

“Among Republicans, both former Governor George Pataki and ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani have been mentioned as possible Senate candidates. Rasmussen Reports tested both these hypothetical match-ups in November.

Giuliani led Gillibrand by 13 points at that time – 53% to 40%. Against Pataki, Gillibrand came out barely ahead, 45% to 42%, nearly identical to findings two months earlier.”

Cool I had the year wrong on that one. Another possible pickup. We need 10! This is becoming possible, not likely yet, but possible.

And if nothing else is spreads them out.

Were o-bow-mans lips moving? The real reason he is going there is to keep reid in a clean diaper, he gets nasty when his poppy diaper needs changing.

I don’t know this guys a complete tin ear, he really thinks him being there somehow helps, even though empirical evidence shows he’s toxic. He’s just that arrogant.

I suspect that rank and file democrats will be the ones distancing themselves and telling him NOT TO COME, not fauxbama deciding not to go.

This guy really lives in a dream world, he thinks he can just issue some vague marching order and them go play golf and come back and its done.
