GOP Debates How To Distance From Bush

Article from The Hill discusses how far exactly Republican Congressional candidates wish to distance themselves from the unpopular president in the mid-term campaigns.

Obviously, the more conservative the district, the more closely the candidate can associate with the president. Of course, when immigration is the issue, Bush doesn't satisfy conservatives. But, Democrats are unlikely to win on immigration in these districts.

Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Conrad Burns of Montana have decided that siding with the president is politically feasible in their states. Burns went as far as to say that "you don't distance yourself from your leader, the guy is tough, and that's what I like about him."
