Manchin: Obama can’t help

by Kristina Wong - The Hill  |  published on October 27, 2014

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) on Sunday tried to distance Democrats running for reelection in red states from President Obama.

“These are people that are willing to reach across the aisle, work with Republicans, independents, whoever they may be, trying to find solutions for America,” he said on “CBS’s Face the Nation,” nine days ahead of an election that could determine if Republicans take over the Senate.

“And I’m hoping the citizens and constituents and voters in those states look at that,” he said, specifically naming Democrats Sens. Mary Landrieu (La.), Mark Begich (Alaska), Kay Hagan (N.C.), Mark Pryor (Ark.) Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Mark Udall (Colo.) and Mark Warner (Va.), who are all fighting tough races.

“I don’t think the president can help in those states there. These people have voted against the president on issues,” he added.
