Is Sen. Mark Udall an insolent teenager? Other than his AARP card, his actions certainly say so. Udall has no problem taking money from Obama, his version of Daddy Warbucks, but when it comes time to appear in public with Obama, Udall is MIA. Is Udall afraid those photos of them together will remind Coloradans he has voted with Obama 99% of the time? As The Washington Times reports:
Colorado’s vulnerable Sen. Mark Udall won’t stump beside President Obama in Denver this week but will join him for a fund-raising event, the senator’s campaign said Monday.
… Mr. Udall is in a neck-and-neck re-election race versus Republican Rep. Cory Gardner and has tried to distance himself from Mr. Obama, who has low approval scores in Colorado as in the rest of the county.
Colorado voters disapprove of Mr. Obama’s job performance 53 percent to 43 percent, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey last month.
But the president still can be a powerful fund-raising ally.
Combine this with how cozy Udall has become with eco-extremist Tom Steyer and we’re starting to see a major theme of Udall reelection starting to emerge:
