President Obama kicks off a four-day campaign swing through the West Wednesday morning.
The five-state, four-day tour is Obama's longest of the 2010 campaign season. He'll visit Washington State, California and Nevada, stumping and raising money for Democratic Senators Patty Murray, Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid. He's also planning on campaigning for gubernatorial candidates in California and Oregon, as well as visiting the Midwest to assist the Democratic governor candidate in Minnesota.
Obama has campaigned several times for the senators in the past, but is making an extra push before election day. Poll numbers are showing a tight race in the Senate, and Obama is trying to keep a Senate majority.
With Obama's approval ratings down, some Democrats don't want his help.
"There are a lot of places where Obama is not an asset," John Harris, Editor-In-Chief of "Politico" said. "Democrats who are in trouble do not welcome him into their districts or into their states.
The major fight is over swing voters. Polls show that 50 percent of Independents who supported the president two years ago are either planning to vote Republican or still aren't sure.
Obama begins his tour Wednesday, and returns to Washington D.C. Saturday night.
