More on Gov races’ federal impact ~ Obama stumping in WI, OH, FL. #gagov #tcot

Amplify’d from dailycaller.com

President Barack Obama will do more in two days this week for his party’s candidates for governor than he has done all year, wrapping his arm around several of the most highly touted gubernatorial hopefuls on the ballot in 2010.

Obama will start in Wisconsin on Monday with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who the White House helped recruit to run for governor. On Wednesday, he’ll headline a fundraiser for Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland in Columbus before flying to Miami to give a boost to Alex Sink, the presumptive Democratic nominee for governor of Florida, at an event for the state party.

The importance of those three states to the 2012 map is not lost on the White House. With the political muscle governors can bring to a presidential campaign, electing Sink, Strickland and Barrett – or some of them – could offer Obama a powerful firewall against any Republican opponent two years from now.
