Nine states, 11 days: Obama on Democratic rescue mission

WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama will visit at least nine states in 11 days starting on Friday as he cranks up his bid to stem expected heavy Democratic losses in mid-term elections.

Obama will also make his first appearances on the campaign trail with his wife Michelle Obama since his 2008 presidential run, as the couple stump at the weekend in midwestern Ohio, a bellwether state ravaged by the recession.

Polls show Republicans on course to grab back control of the House of Representatives on November 2, and all but certain to at least decimate the Democratic majority in the Senate.

Obama’s trip is a mixture of appearances with candidates and flexing political star power to raise campaign cash and persuade his young and diverse coalition to show up to vote even though he is not on the ballot.

The president, fresh from trips to Philadelphia on Sunday and Monday, will visit Delaware, Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington state, California, Nevada, Ohio, Minnesota and Rhode Island in the next 11 days, the White House said.

Another campaign swing is expected in the final days before the election, as the president warns a Republican victory will curtail his ambitious agenda.

Obama will appear on Sunday in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio with the First Lady, who is expanding her own campaign schedule but will be speaking with her husband at a political rally for the first time in two years.

“I think this is a good way to have a bigger crowd and have some energy, she is obviously very effective,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters.

Most analysts are projecting heavy losses for Democrats among the entire 435-seat House of Representatives which is up for grabs in November.

Republicans also need to pick up 10 seats in the Senate to complete a takeover of Capitol Hill — a much tougher task, though appear well placed in at least six of the seats they need to win.
