Obama To Congressional Dems: Ride The Coattails

Contrary to the pro-Obama narrative being pushed by the media, Team Obama rightly knows that the battle for the White House is likely to be a closely contested affair in November. As such, Team Obama has informed congressional Dems that they are essentially on their own in 2012 (at least for now). The Hill's Josh Lederman has more:

Top officials from the Democratic National Committee and President Obama's reelection campaign have warned the party's House and Senate committees not to expect any financial help this year, a Democratic source confirmed Monday.

Obama campaign staffers Jim Messina and David Plouffe told House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that no cash transfers to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee or Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will take place ahead of the election in November.

It also suggests that despite Democrats' perilous control over the Senate and aspirations to regain control of the House, reelecting the Democratic president will remain the party's top priority.
