Democrat Panic Watch, Part Three

by Jim Geraghty

The new strategy for endangered Democratic senators when asked about Obamacare:

1) Say, “I’ll get back to you on that.”

2) Run away.

Vulnerable members of the president’s party appeared to run from questions about it Wednesday.

Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) — one of the Senate’s most vulnerable incumbents — twice waved off a reporter’s questions. Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), who will likely face GOP Rep. Cory Gardner in November, said he would prefer to answer a reporter’s question by phone to offer a “coherent” response. But his aides did not later make him available for an interview.

They can run, but they can’t hide.

Can’t wait for the town-hall meetings this summer! Those vulnerable incumbents will have town-hall meetings this summer, right?
