DCCC Nearing “Every Man for Himself!” Phase of Campaign

Fascinating find by the team at the Weekly Standard.  Seems the head of the DCCC, NY Congressman Steve Israel, whose job is to make sure that Barack Obama has control of the House of Representatives after November (not likely, but hey a man can dream) has pretty much acknowledged the president might not have the coattails they thought he might have.

In fact, he’s almost saying he approves with all these Democratic candidates announcing they won’t be in Charlotte for the DNC in early September.

“I don’t care if the president was at 122 percent favorability right now,” he said. “I think (candidates) should be in their districts,” rather than spend time at the convention, which will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, September 3-6.

“A trip to Charlotte may be interesting,” Israel said, “but why leave your districts?”

The Democratic convention, during which Obama will formally be nominated as the Democratic presidential choice, is viewed warily by some of the party’s candidates.

The gathering to fete Obama is a particularly sensitive issue for Democratic candidates who are in close races in states or districts where Obama trails Republican Mitt Romney in voter surveys.

Has anyone asked if Jaime Wall or Pat Kreitlow will be in North Carolina later this summer?  I’m fully expecting Tammy Baldwin to be there, if not have a speaking role at the convention.  She’s had such a role at previous DNC Conventions.
