Two High-Profile Democrat Congressional Candidates Refuse To Back Obama…

Former North Dakota Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp and  Ron Barber have started the back off from President Obama.

Here’s what Heitkamp had to say about Obama this week:

Heidi Heitkamp, a former North Dakota attorney general seeking to replace the retiring Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), told the AP that Obama has “failed in the one test America had for him, which was to unite the country.”

“I think he needed to be more hands-on … I don’t think he’s done enough to think broadly and come up with solutions that would engage both sides in a reasonable dialogue,” she added.

And here’s how Barber handled the top-of-the-ticket question in a candidate debate:

When it was his turn to ask his rival a question, [Republican Jesse] Kelly asked Barber to declare who he’ll vote for in November for president, and Barber — although a Democrat with an incumbent president of his party — refused, saying he’s focused on his own campaign.

Kelly used that demurral as an opportunity to say Barber won’t even admit that he supports Obama and “Obamacare,” a law that Kelly described as terrible.

“My biggest fear is Mr. Obama’s job-killing policies,” Kelly said.

Barber later retorted that his biggest fear is Kelly’s “extreme policies.”
