Clinton & Obama Differ On Colorado Senate Candidates

Apparently there is some friction between former Democratic President Bill Clinton and current President Barack Obama (D) with regard to who should represent Colorado Dems on the ballot in November for U.S. Senate. According to The Hill, Former President Bill Clinton did not let President Barack Obama know that he was planning to endorse Colorado Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff.

White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters on Air Force One that the White House found out about Clinton’s endorsement of the candidate running against Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) with the rest of the world. Burton said: “It sounds to me like just a difference of opinion in a primary.”

Obama has endorsed Bennet, and the White House came under fire from Republicans for trying to get Romanoff to abandon his run against Bennet with vague discussions about a position in the administration.

The Colorado primary is August 10.
