CHICAGO (AP)

Democratic Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias says President Barack Obama made a mistake by focusing heavily on
health care reform.

During an Associated Press interview Monday, Giannoulias said there should have been a “laser like” focus in Washington on
creating jobs.

Giannoulias, who’s running for Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat, said putting people back to work should have been the focus of the
administration to the exclusion of almost everything else domestically.

The Chicago Democrat also says Obama has sometimes been “too nice.”

He says Obama went to the White House thinking everyone would work together, and “he got it all thrown back in his face.”

Giannoulias is in a tight contest with Republican Mark Kirk to get to Washington.
