Even better is Grimes’ excuse not to be seen with Obama in public: She doesn’t need a “surrogate,” yet she will be campaigning with Bill Clinton tomorrow.
Another Democratic senate candidate isn’t eager to have President Obama join her on the campaign trail. Kentucky’s Alison Lundergan Grimes wouldn’t say if she wanted him to stump with him, only furthering the impression that she has a “painfully cautious” candidate.
“I speak for myself, and don’t need any other surrogate to do that,” Grimes told MSNBC. “I stand in sharp contrast to the president and many of his ideas and platforms.”
Despite Grimes’ denial that she doesn’t need “any other surrogate” to bolster her campaign, she will be joined by Bill Clinton in Louisville on Tuesday.
