McCaskill: I Wouldn't Want Obama To Visit My State if I Was Up For Re-election

The president may not be a help to Democratic candidates in some parts of the country


Sen. Claire McCaskill said Tuesday that if she were up for reelection this year in a purple state, she "probably" would not have President Barack Obama campaign with her.

The Missouri Democrat was asked on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" if she would appear with Obama if she were one of the Democrats running for reelection in Arkansas, Louisiana or North Carolina.
