Will U.S. Rep. Spratt be helped or hurt by Obama photo op?

Toward the end of the flight, U.S. Rep. John Spratt was ushered into President Barack Obama's office aboard Air Force One. The pair spent 10 or 15 minutes conferring on budget matters, then Spratt gave the president a primer on how the Charlotte region, and much of the 5th Congressional District, has struggled with the collapse of textiles. Once on the ground in Charlotte, Obama motioned for Spratt to join him on the walk down from Air Force One.
