Kentucky candidate shuns Obama to woo voters

Senate candidate in state with no love for US president avoids his name to increase his electoral chances.

    Voters in the US will go to the polls on Tuesday. 

    The outcome of the mid-term elections will decide how much President Barack Obama will be able to accomplish in his final two years. But the president has only been seen with a handful of candidates in the run-up to the vote.
