Obama, Clinton face off in race
“Andrew brings to this race both an extraordinary record of public service and an extraordinary capacity to lead,” said Mr. Clinton in a fundraising letter. “I believe that those assets, as well as his deep commitment to Colorado, give him the best chance to hold this seat in November.”
Mr. Clinton, who won Colorado in the 1992 presidential race, remains popular among Democrats, and his backing is expected to provide a needed boost to the Romanoff campaign, which trails the Bennet camp in both the polls and in fundraising.
The endorsement was also expected to raise the race’s national profile. “You’re watching the two biggest names in the Democratic Party square off against each other in this one race,” said Mr. Ciruli.
Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Waak admits she was surprised to learn of the dueling Democrats.
“It is a little unusual to have a sitting president and a former president from the same party doing opposite endorsements,” said Ms. Waak. “[But] I don’t know how much difference it makes to people. The candidates still have to get out there and do the work.”
