Pete Stark gets President Obama’s endorsement

Friday, May 18, 2012

The 80-year-old Fremont Democrat who’s seeking his 20th term has been quiet lately since a rash of foot-in-mouth campaign statements, including accusing Democratic challenger Eric Swalwell of bribery. (He later apologized for that one.) Today he picked up the endorsement of President Obama. Josh Richman has the news release at Political Blotter.

Swalwell’s spin: “Pete Stark knows he is in trouble and now has to call on the President for support. The only endorsements I am interested in are from people who live and vote here.”
