Daily Fix Poll: In what race will Obama's visit this week make the most difference?
By Felicia Sonmez
President Barack Obama is hitting the campaign trail hard this week, holding events in five states for candidates facing hotly contested races.
On Wednesday, Obama visits Oregon, where he'll headline a rally for former Gov. John Kitzhaber (D), who's facing a stiff challenge from former Portland Trail Blazers center Chris Dudley (R) in a bid to win back his old job.
Then on Thursday, the president heads to Washington state to campaign for Sen. Patty Murray (D) in her race for a fourth term; polls show Murray locked in a tight contest with former state Sen. Dino Rossi (R), who is making his third bid for statewide office in the past six years.
Obama makes two campaign stops on Friday for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) in California and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada, both of whom are facing tough challenges from their GOP rivals.
And on Saturday, Obama heads to Minnesota to rally Democrats on behalf of former Sen. Mark Dayton (D), who is running for governor.
Which of these five candidates do you think stands to benefit the most from Obama's visit? Vote, and tell us why, below.
