WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he hopes Democrats will be rewarded on election night next Tuesday for taking tough votes in Congress. Interviewed Wednesday on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” Obama lauded several members of Congress for taking votes he said they knew would be bad politically but who did so because it was the right thing to do.
He named Rep. Tom Perriello. The Virginia Democrat voted for the president’s health care bill and is in a tight race against Republican state Sen. Robert Hurt.
