Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said in an interview airing Tuesday that Democratic senators who are vulnerable in 2014 should welcome President Obama on the campaign trail.

“Anytime the President of the United States appears supporting a candidate, it helps,” Reid told CNN’s Dana Bash.

Reid added: “Barack Obama is personally a very popular guy, and people love this man, they love his family. Of course, with what the Republicans have been doing, trying to denigrate him with what’s happened with the rollout of Obamacare. But things — even this week, his numbers are going up again.”
