On Tuesday’s “New Day” on CNN, Associated Press White House correspondent Julie Pace pointed out that Democrats facing reelection are avoiding President Barack Obama as he has made trips around the country, sometime going to extraordinary lengths to do so. That included Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mary Burke, who was absent during Obama’s visit to Milwaukee on Monday.
“Some of these Democrats are twisting themselves all up in knots trying to figure out what the right thing to do is,” Pace said. “Do you appear with him? Do you not? [Burke] tried to split the difference. She didn’t appear in front of cameras but did have a private meeting with him … Just have the moment and move on. Don’t create a lot of drama around it.”
