Obama weighs which Dems to help in key races

Both candidates could use Obama

MGN Online

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is planning to steer clear of New Jersey's high-profile race for governor. But he'll probably give at least some help to the Democrat in the Virginia governor's race.

That's according to a Democratic official who wasn't authorized to talk publicly about strategy and insisted on anonymity.

Virginia Democrat Terry McAuliffe is embroiled in a scandal, but the race is highly competitive.

The White House will have to make these delicate calculations constantly next year, when the stakes are higher. Congressional elections will determine how much Obama can accomplish in his final two years.
