Rep. Joseph Cao, last month :
Unlike just about all his GOP colleagues, Cao has backed PresidentBarack Obama on some (but not all) of his major initiatives. Even moreunusual these days, the two have struck up a warm relationship.
On a personal level, Cao said, "I love the president, and I believe he truly likes me."
President Barack Obama, in an ad for Cedric Richmond, who's running against Cao.
Rep. Joseph Cao, now :
"He didn't even have the courtesy (to call us)" before running the ad, Cao spokesman Devin Johnson told FoxNews.com. "That hurt the congressman. At least, he wanted that courtesy."
It's quite a favor Obama did for Richmond; if Cao survives, he is the one candidate who faced down an ad starring Barack Obama.
