Blumenthal Keeps Obama at Arm's Length during Stamford Visit
Friday, September 17, 2010
On a day when his once-safe race was downgraded by a political handicapper to a "toss up," U. S. Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal had the delicate task of thanking a fellow Democrat who came to raise needed dollars, while maintaining some distance.
That's not easy when the visitor is the president.
Blumenthal welcomed Barack Obama to Stamford Thursday night for a fundraiser, yet politely warned the president "on some occasions we may disagree."
