Yesterday, Richard Carmona – who is the only candidate that was personally recruited by both President Barack Obama and Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid – refused to tell Politico if he’ll vote for Harry Reid to be the Majority Leader.
Carmona is one of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's favorite candidates and was personally courted by President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to get into the race. (David Catanese, Bivens clears the way for Carmona, Politico, 3/27/2012)
As a reminder, the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and the Harry Reid connected – Majority PAC – have spent over $900,000 in Arizona for Richard Carmona.

Yet, Carmona has the audacity to claim that he hasn’t decided if he will vote to keep Harry Reid as the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate. Additionally, it’s worth remembering that Carmona claimed that he had no connection to President Obama, yet it was widely reported that the President personally recruited him to run.
"Not only was Richard Carmona personally recruited by both President Barack Obama and Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid to run for the U.S. Senate, National Democrats have sent nearly $1 million to aid Carmona’s campaign. Of course Richard Carmona’s first vote will be for Harry Reid – so they can implement President Obama’s liberal agenda – and given that he can’t be honest about this simple fact, serves as a reminder that Carmona can’t be trusted.” Jahan Wilcox, NRSC Spokesman
