Landrieu, in Tight Race, Backing Away From Obama

A spokesman for Landrieu’s GOP opponent, John Kennedy, said he believes the senator removed her name because she doesn’t want to be too closely connected with Obama in Louisiana, which has trended Republican in federal elections.”Why did she allow Barack Obama to quietly list her as co-host of a Washington fundraiser at a tony restaurant in August? Because she thought Louisianans might not notice,” Lenny Alcivar, Kennedy campaign spokesman, said Tuesday.”Senators, especially those running for re-election, don’t get listed as fundraising co-hosts for presidential candidates by ‘accident,'” Alcivar said.—Associated Press
