More Dems Won't Answer Vote-for-Obama Question

By    |   Thursday, 16 Oct 2014 05:38 PM

Georgia Senate hopeful Michelle Nunn is the latest Democrat declining to say whether she voted for Barack Obama.

Confronted by an America Rising member with a camera on Wednesday, Nunn smiled and kept walking when asked if she voted for the president in 2008 and 2012.

One supporter told the America Rising representative to leave Nunn alone while others responded, "Yes, yes, he's the president," and, "He's done great things."

With Obama at record-low approval ratings in his sixth year in office, vulnerable Democrats across the country are distancing themselves from him. Their Republican opponents are happy to point out the voting records of incumbent Democrats that match closely with the president's agenda.

Nunn, the daughter of popular former Sen. Sam Nunn, has ties to Republicans as well. She is on leave from former President George H.W. Bush's Points of Light Foundation while running for Senate.

While other Democrats are simply distancing themselves, Nunn is the second to actually refuse to answer how she voted for the president. Alison Lundergan Grimes has twice refused to say whether she voted for him.

Grimes is seeking to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. She has cited her "constitutional right" to a secret ballot for not saying how she voted.

America Rising reports that a third Democrat, West Virginia's Natalie Tennant, on Thursday declined to say she voted for Obama. She got around the "Obama" word by saying she voted for "the Democrat Party," whose nominee, of course, was Barack Obama.

Story continues below video.


Though other candidates in a forum freely named the candidate they voted for, Tennant said she voted for the Democrats, before going into a criticism of Obama and his anti-coal policies.
