Skip to comments.Obama to Stump for Reid (Reid Toast)
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.
For the latest on the 2010 Senate contests, check out the CQ Politics election map.
Kirsten Gillibrand (D -NY) Hillary’s replacement is very vulnerable.
“Election 2010: New York Senate
2010 NY Senate: Gillibrand 39%, Generic Republican 34%, Ford 10%”
Nice list, but Dorgan has already bailed and Bennet is definitely vulnerable as well.
“...when is Pelosi up for re-election?”
Every two years.
From link at post #53:
“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.”
Thank you, I had a very good laugh seeing your headline. Yes, oh yes Obama, please campaign for Reid. In fact, please cut some 2010 ads for every democrat, ha ha ha ah ah ha ha ha.
Betcha, “some scheduling conflict” comes up to prevent nobama from hitting the dusty trail with dingy harry.
Betcha lots of “scheduling conflicts’ prevent nobama from helping any of those with any question on lockin election.
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.
Who does this twelve year-old a-hole think he 's kidding?(No offense to intelligent twelvers).
I meant to ask if she was up this Nov.
Maybe Cindy Sheehan will take her spot.
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.
“I meant to ask if she was up this Nov.”
All members of the House of Representatives are up this November.
