Quote of the Day: “It Appears That the White House Has Written Off the Carnahan Campaign”

March 10th, 2010 by MarkTwain · No Comments

Mr. Ed: “Hey Robin, where is Barack?

“Barack Obama should be campaigning his heart out for Robin Carnahan—after all, Carnahan has pledged to rubberstamp his agenda of a government takeover of healthcare, job-killing cap-and-tax, and the failed stimulus bill, and much more. But maybe Obama sees the writing on the wall and realizes that Carnahan is way too liberal for Missouri. It appears that the White House has written off the Carnahan campaign. We are not aware of another example of the President ignoring a U.S. Senate candidate on the ballot in less than 8 months and instead raising money for someone who is not up for reelection until 2012.” –Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party

Or, has Carnahan written the president off?

Politico: “Democrat Robin Carnahan will be absent from the invitation-only afternoon rally at St. Charles High School due to a prior commitment in Washington, the campaign tells POLITICO.”

What??? The president of the United States is in your home state while you’re involved in a closely watched campaign and you stick with a prior committment? Washington D.C. fundraisers are more important than being seen with the president? We agree with the prime Buzz’s assessment:

Prime Buzz: “Why is the president coming to Missouri to campaign for McCaskill when another hot Senate race featuring Democrat Robin Carnahan is already at full swing? Could it be that Carnahan doesn’t want to be so closely tied to a president whose poll numbers in Missouri, right now, anyway, are upside down.” Read more…

    One thing I ask ……… Where is Sarah Steeleman?? I think that she is the conservative candidate who can win. No offense Mr. Blunt, but we need a winner. We need someone with energy. I do not want to lose the Senate seat to another “Baby Carnahan.”
