‘I, uh, you know…’ Ariz Dem Mark Kelly’s bumbling Biden answer makes the rounds for all the wrong reasons

Democratic candidates running in competitive races have been reluctant to associate too closely with President Joe Biden, out of concern he may tank their chances much like he’s tanked his own approval ratings.

One such Democrat, Sen. Mark Kelly, from Arizona, painfully made that all too obvious during a local one-on-one interview when he was asked if the president is doing a good job — the latest polling has Kelly up by just 2 points in his race.

“Hey, I th-, you know, I, uh, you know, I, it, first of all, it’s not my job to give him a report,” Kelly replied, fumbling and stumbling along the way.

The incumbent senator’s Republican opponent, Blake Masters, knows a golden opportunity when he sees one and shared the clip online.

“Look at Mark Kelly squirm when asked if Biden is doing a good job,” Masters tweeted, adding, “Senator: Biden’s record is YOUR record. Can’t hide from that now.”

The media has been working hard to buoy Biden’s image ahead of the midterms, touting recent legislative wins and a short-lived, minor bump in his ratings, but Kelly has been giving the president the cold shoulder for a while now.

Last month on CNN, he offered a lukewarm endorsement of Biden coming to visit him on the campaign trail.

“I will welcome anybody that comes to Arizona, travel around the state at any time, as long as I’m here, if I’m not up in Washington in session, and talk about what Arizona needs,” Kelly said at the time.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
