President Barack Obama plans to appear in television and radio advertisements for down-ballot Democrats campaigning across the country, according to a new report from the Washington Post. Among the beneficiaries will be Vermont’s own Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Sue Minter:

On the radio, Obama cut ads for Vermont Democratic gubernatorial candidate Sue Minter and North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper, who is challenging incumbent Republican Gov. Pat McCrory. He’s also on the radio for [North Carolina Senate candidate Deborah] Ross and [Pennsylvania Senate candidate Katie] McGinty and Senate candidates Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada, and Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire.

Minter campaign spokesman Elliott Bent confirmed the Post's story Friday morning.

“In the ad, the president endorses Sue because she shares his values: economy for the middle class, education, fighting climate change, protecting women’s right to choose,” he said in a brief written statement.

Bent said the campaign itself, not a supportive super PAC, would pay for the Obama ad. He did not reveal when it would go on-air.

    According to Internal Revenue Service filings, the state's 6,044 federally recognized nonprofits reported annual revenue of $6.8 billion and assets of $13.2 billion. These public-private hybrids, funded by the wealthy and the state, have in recent decades become a sort of shadow government. They educate the young, treat the ill, conserve the environment, and feed and house the poor.
