Rep. John Barrow is not as popular among his Democratic colleagues as he used to be.
Far fewer of Barrow’s colleagues in the House have contributed to the Georgia Democrat’s reelection campaign this cycle than they did in previous years. Barrow attracted widespread criticism from the left after voting no on the final health reform bill earlier this year. That vote has been a focal point of his primary challenger’s campaign.
Only five lawmakers, Reps. Brian Baird (D-Wash.), Richard Neal (D-Mass.), Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) and Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) have given money from their personal campaign funds to Barrow in the 2010 cycle.
