Obama Is Campaigning For Democrats In The Midterms For One Reason – His Legacy Is on The Line

Obama has broken precedent by campaigning for his party during the midterms. There’s only one reason for that. He is desperate. He knows his legacy is on the line.

The Hill reports he’s headed to Pennsylvania soon:

Obama to hit campaign trail in Pa. for gubernatorial, Senate candidates

Former President Obama will stop in Philadelphia next week to campaign for Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial and Senate candidates, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party announced Friday.

The former president next Friday will stump for Gov. Tom Wolf and Sen. Bob Casey, both of whom are running for reelection, as well as for down-ballot House and state legislative races in a state where Democrats have their sights set on flipping several competitive seats at the state and national level.

The stop in Philadelphia is the latest in Obama’s whirlwind tour to boost Democratic candidates across the country and attack President Trump and Republican policies.

The former president burst back onto the political scene earlier this month at a speech in Illinois when he issued a blistering rebuke of Trump and the direction of the Republican Party on everything from taxes to relations with Russia to Trump’s response to the neo-Nazi and white supremacist-led rally in Charlottesville in 2017.

This is simple. If Democrats lose this fall and he didn’t try to help, he would get some of the blame. If they win, he wants to take credit.
