Clintons and Obama Are Out Campaigning For Democrats But Biden Is Taking It Easy

Former President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have hit the campaign trail.

President Joe Biden, on the other hand, continues to maintain a light schedule.

"Obama, who left office six years ago, is campaigning hard for Democratic candidates across the country from Arizona to Georgia," reported Fox. "In the past week alone, he has traveled to at least five states to hold rallies and events with Democratic candidates from the U.S. Senate down to state legislatures."

Clintons and Obama Hit Campaign Trail

Mark Penn, a Democratic pollster, strategic and contributor for Fox News shared his thoughts on the campaign decision.

"Obama is the most popular Democrat out there, but that’s because he is out, not in, politics," said Penn.

"Obama is not the only Democratic heavyweight to re-emerge as a surrogate in the waning days of the midterm cycle. Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are similarly taking to the hustings for vulnerable Democrats," reported Fox.

"Midterms are usually a referendum on the sitting president," said J. Miles Coleman, political and elections analyst at the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.

"So, it’s not surprising to see the Clintons, who are seen as party elders, hitting the campaign trail in New York, where the former secretary won statewide office twice as a senator," Coleman said.

Meanwhile, Biden's schedule remains light. He will only be appearing at a handful of events to campaign for his party.
