Republican candidates around the nation say they would welcome their likely presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, with open arms on their campaign trails, according to The Washington Times.

Meanwhile, some Democratic hopefuls have not embraced any help from President Barack Obama.

Republican Sen. Scott P. Brown of Massachusetts, squaring off with Democrat Elizabeth Warren, told the Times, “Certainly, I’d be happy to. He’s one of the nicest, honest, hardworking men I’ve ever met. When it comes to the economic issues, there is nobody that can compete with his ability to solve problems.”

Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada, running against Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley, said he hopes Romney frequents Nevada. “The president clearly doesn’t understand and has proven over the last three years that he doesn’t understand how this economy works, and I believe that’s what Gov. Romney brings to the table.

"He understands finances, he understand the economy and he understands what it’s going to take to turn it around and provide jobs for Nevada and solve the bankruptcy problems we have in the state.”

Brown and Heller are among more than half-dozen Republicans contacted by the newspaper.

Meanwhile, some Democrats, such as Sen. Mark L. Pryor of Arkansas, have ducked public appearances with Obama. “As much as I may love all of our presidents, I just don’t really get involved in those races,” Pryor told TheCityWire.com. “My view is, Democrat, Republican, it doesn’t matter, my view is I’m in Washington to try to work with people.”

Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, up for re-election in the swing state of Ohio, was absent when Obama spoke earlier this year at a high school outside Cleveland. Also, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri did not appear with Obama at two private fundraisers late last year.
