Kaine: Democrats Shouldn't Run From Obama

Monday, 09 Aug 2010 02:48 PM

WASHINGTON – Party Chairman Tim Kaine says Democrats would be "making a mistake" to distance themselves from President Barack Obama in the fall election campaign.

Kaine says Obama well understands the historical trend where the party in power typically suffers electoral losses in non-presidential election years.

But still, Kaine says, it's no reason for the party's congressional candidates to shun him. He said voters understand that "Democrats have been doing the work necessary to get the nation going again" and voters will support them in November.

Kaine charged that the Republican strategy this fall is to "go back and do things that put the American economy into a free fall."
