White House Backs Lincoln In Arkansas Primary

LAUREN VICTORIA BURKE

President Obama is sticking with Sen. Blanche Lincoln in the May 18 Democratic primary in Arkansas.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs confirmed today that Obama will keep with his trend of supporting the sitting senator in party primaries, as he’s done with Sen. Arlen Specter over Rep. Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania and in supporting Sen. Michael Bennet in Colorado.

“We support Senator Lincoln as an incumbent senator,” Gibbs told reporters today during his daily briefing.
