Description

By Jonathan Allen Senate Republicans are divided over the questions of whether and by how much GOP candidates should distance themselves from President Bush and the Iraq war on the campaign trail this year. Bush’s approval rating remains stuck in the 30s, and at least two elected Republican officials have suggested recently that the president may be an albatross in the upcoming midterm elections. While some Republican senators are staking claims to independence in their home states, others are quicker to embrace the president. They must weigh the advantages of Bush’s imprimatur in Republican circles against his poor ratings among Democrats and independents.
