Senate Democrats And Obama's Re-election Campaign Fighting Over Campaign Cash!!

Money is the mother's milk of politics, and a number of Democrat Senators facing tough fights themselves are complaining that the president's re-election campaign is sucking up so much of it that it might leave them starving orphans.

In a recent meeting in Washington, Reid, along with Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.); Sen. Harry Reid, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the third-highest ranking Democrat; and Sen. Patty Murray (Wash.), chairwoman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, campaign manager Jim Messina ( center) not to lock up the richest Democrat donors.

They also asked for at least $10 million in aid from the Democratic National Committee and from President Obama’s reelection campaign to help underwrite TV ad campaigns and on-the-ground campaigning for what they see DemocratSenate seats at risk in 2012.

Messina refused to agree to the request not to max out the big donors, and would not commit to an amount on how much campaign moolah the Senate Democrats will get from the DNC and the Obama campaign.

“We have a huge number of incumbents who are up this cycle and a lot of them have taken tough votes to enact significant portions of this president’s agenda, and I think that there is a sense that there should be an all-hands-on-deck approach to keep the Senate in Democratic hands,” said one Democratic official familiar with the meeting according to the Politico.

They're all competing for cash from the same list of fat cat donors, and they're frightened that the president's re-election campaign is going to hoover up so much of the available cash that it's going to leave them out in the cold, so they're looking for the president to spread the wealth around.

I can hear President Obama chuckling from here.

please helps me write more gooder!
