WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is accelerating his
fundraising pace, inviting Democratic candidates to decide whether
the money he draws is worth the Republican attacks that a
presidential visit might bring.

It's not an easy choice for some.

Democrats need millions of dollars to defend dozens of House and Senate seats this fall.

ButObama's approval ratings are sinking well below 50 percent in
several key states.

Obama is headlining four Democratic fundraisers in three days
and hosting another four events next week.

For now he's playing it safe.
He is holding the eight events in noncompetitive states or in a competitive place where he's sure to be embraced: his home state
of Illinois.
