Virginia Democrat, Rep. Abigail Spanberger, is doing everything she can to avoid reminding voters that she’s from the same party as Joe Biden in her race for reelection. When asked if Biden would be campaigning for her in the very competitive race, she made it clear she wanted him nowhere around. Spanberger is so afraid of associating herself with Biden, that she wouldn’t even commit to supporting him for reelection in 2024. Chris Enloe reports in The Blaze:
Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger went on Fox News Tuesday and explained that she does not want President Joe Biden campaigning for her.
Fox News host Dana Perino told Spanberger the Cook Politico Report shows the district she is campaigning for this November — the newly redrawn 7th Congressional District in Virginia — is a “Democratic toss-up.”
Perino thus asked Spanberger whether Biden would help her campaign. But the Virginia Democrat made it clear Biden will not.
“I intend to do the campaigning myself. I am the candidate. It is my name on the ballot,” Spanberger said. “Certainly when I first ran, I ran in an R +7 district. And I won in that seat by getting out, speaking to voters, making sure that they know who I am and what it is that I intended to do for them.
“In 2020, [I] ran for re-election and certainly outperformed the president on the ballot by telling the people what I had done and what I was going to continue to do,” she added.
Earlier in the interview, Spanberger refused to say whether she would support Biden for re-election in 2024.
“I’m looking squarely toward 2022 and the re-election ahead of me, working to make sure voters across Virginia’s 7th district know what I’ve been doing on their behalf and why I’m asking for their vote again,” Spanberger said. “I’ll be focused on 2024 after we get through the 2022 elections.”
