This is just plain awkward. The embattled Senator won't even attend his own fundraiser featuring President Obama. I wonder why Obama's liberal ally wouldn't want to be seen shaking POTUS' hand?

Sen. Mark Udall's staff said Wednesday that legislative business in Washington D.C. will keep the senator from a Democratic fundraiser in Denver featuring President Barack Obama.
The U.S. Senate will vote Wednesday on the confirmation of U.S. Secretary of Housing & Urban Development, Julian Castro, and Udall needs to be in Washington, according to his staff.
"Due to last-minute votes and legislative activity, Mark will be unable to make the trip back to Colorado on Wednesday," said Chris Harris, communications director of Udall for Colorado.
Other legislation is also keeping Udall in Washington, Harris said.
