Shocker. Obama Stumps For Ron Klein… Ron Klein Flees

Obama raised money yesterday for Rep. Ron Klein but Klein would not be seen with him.

STACLU caught this in the LA Times report:

President Barack Obama urged Democratic donors at an NBA star-studded Coral Gables fundraiser on Monday to get out the vote and boost Democrats, telling them that his 2008 election “was only the beginning of the dream.”

Obama spoke at the home of former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning, who was joined by Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and former L.A. Lakers and NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson.

…The event raised an estimated $1 million for congressional Democrats and Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton, who Obama apologized for calling Ron Klain in his introductory remarks. Klain is vice president Joe Biden’s chief of staff.

He gave two speeches open to the press; Klein did not appear next to him at either.
