WASHINGTON (AP) - Will Democrats be seeing some fallout this November over the ground zero mosque debate?
They will, according to Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, who says President Barack Obama is "disconnected from mainstream America" on the issue.

Obama has said that religious freedom allows the mosque to be built. But he says he's not commenting on "the wisdom" of building a mosque two blocks from ground zero.

But on Fox News today, Democratic Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island said the economy will remain the dominant election issue.
