African American Newspaper Warns Robin Carnahan on “Drifting Too Far Away”

Missouri’s largest African American newspaper takes Carnahan to task for choosing to attend a fundraiser in D.C., instead of attending a defacto fundraiser on her behalf in St. Louis.

St. Louis American:

You may have heard that a Democrat is running to replace him [Kit Bond], Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (the largest statewide vote-getter in the most recent statewide election). You may have expected her to be there, basking in the president’s glow. Not so.

Carnahan’s camp said there was a scheduling conflict, but it sure looks like a calculated campaign decision to keep some distance from Obama and his association with incumbent Washington politics.

Notwithstanding Missouri’s purple state status, there is no way for a Democratic candidate to win without some enthusiasm for the candidate in the African-American community.

The election is more than seven months away, and this is no time to start taking chances on drifting too far away from the most reliable voting bloc for Democratic candidates in Missouri. Read more…

    Just goes to show what a bunch of racist bigots the presidents supporters are. These are the Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, Emaanuel Cleaver racists, who, if you disagree with them, they call you a racist. A true Conservative, much less a true Christian, would never support a party who wants abortion, stem cell research, or death panels. They put race first, which shows their hypocrisy. I am of the human race first and foremost and protect life.
