An op-ed in The Hill by former congressional aide Brent Budowsky said that bigwigs from the Democratic Party, including former President , have “remained virtually silent and politically AWOL in the great battle for the of in the midterm elections.”

The writer claimed that Obama seems more interested in giving “lavishly compensated speeches to big banks and other special interests to enrich himself”, instead of defending the cause.

Republicans bigwigs on the hand, have been actively supporting their candidates for the midterm elections. President came to the state of Montana last week to personally give his support to a Republican Senate candidate there. He has also personally endorsed other Republican candidates like Kevin Cramer and Kelly Armstrong from North Dakota.

Besides other bigwigs like Vice President , Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue have also been actively supporting their candidates for the midterm elections.

The absence of the support of Democratic bigwigs (besides former Vice President Joe ) for their candidates, especially when they have found themselves to be targets of Republican jabs has raised many questions.

“No Hillary ? No Barack Obama? Where are they?”

Budowsky suggests in his op-ed, “At a time of crisis for the country, candor and truth are called for (and so) Obama should stand up”.
