Michelle Nunn Won’t Say If She Voted for Obama

​Another Democratic Senate candidate has refused to say whether she voted for President Obama: This time it was Michelle Nunn in Georgia.

The same question has tripped up other red-state Democrats on the campaign trail. On two occasions over the past week, Kentucky’s Alison Lundergan Grimes has been panned for her refusal to answer the question, twice citing the “sanctity of the ballot box” as her reason for keeping mum.

Nunn was approached by a tracker who asked her if she voted for the president in 2008 or 2012. Nunn did not respond and kept walking towards the venue she was headed to. In the video captured, a member of her entourage faces the tracker and asks, “Would you leave her alone?”​

A voice in the background can be heard saying, “Yes — of course, yes, he’s the president.” “He’s done great things, he’s done great things, great things — health care,” the supporter continues.

Democrats are hoping Nunn can pull off the win in Georgia over Republican businessman David Perdue in the race to replace retiring Republican senator Saxby Chambliss. On Tuesday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced that it will spend an additional $1 million in the race.
