President Obama is done running for office and he urged lawmakers on Capitol Hill in his State of the Union address on Tuesday to break free from Washington’s culture of campaigning.
Check it out:
“I have no more campaigns to run,” Obama said, apparently provoking ironic applause from some Republicans in the room.
“I know because I won both of them,” he said to laughs in an off-the-cuff remark aimed at that side of the room.
Obama targeted constant fundraising, dark money, negative advertising, and politicians who play to grassroots voters instead of their constituents in his address.
