The White House says it's not worried about four consecutive losses by Democratic candidates President Barack Obama had supported.
The latest defeat came Tuesday when Sen. Arlen Specter lost to Rep. Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania's Democratic primary. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs gave a simple, one-word answer when asked Thursday if Obama or his political team are concerned about the 0-4 losing streak.
"No," Gibbs said. The other three losing Democratic candidates were gubernatorial hopefuls Creigh Deeds of Virginia and Jon Corzine of New Jersey, and Senate candidate Martha Coakley of Massachusetts. Coakley had hoped to succeed the late Edward M. Kennedy.
