President Obama's reelection problems continue in North Carolina, the state that's hosting this year's Democratic National Committee convention later this year. Congressman Mike McIntyre, a Democratic representative of North Carolina's Seventh Congressional District, is now refusing to endorse President Obama.

A local news affiliate asked McIntyre who he'd be endorsing: 

McIntyre responded: "We've always been steadfast in our work for eastern North Carolina and I'm grateful because we've had Republican and Democratic friends who have supported us because they know my heart is there and it's not about a party agenda or any other person's agenda. Our focus is on the congressional race in eastern North Carolina."

For at least several months, McIntyre has refused to answer the question of whether he'll be supporting President Obama in November's presidential election.
