Starting Lineup: GOP Trouble On The Last Frontier

October 20, 2010
Other Debates: Plenty more on Wednesday including the Florida gubernatorial race between state CFO Alex Sink (D) and businessman Rick Scott (R). There will also be debates in the Illinois and Connecticut gubernatorial races. And Chris Coons (D) and Christine O'Donnell (R) square off yet again. O'Donnell is probably hoping to avoid another separation of church and state-like gaffe. DNC Hauls In The Dough: The Democratic National Committee has continued its fundraising sprint, raising $11 million in the first 13 days of October. Yowza. And remember that $16 million it reported for September? The DNC is amending that report to add about another $1 million for that month. Pelosi Plummets: All the GOP attack ads tying Democrats to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are certainly taking their toll on their Speaker's already-low popularity. New Gallup numbers out Wednesday show that just 29 percent of Americans view Pelosi favorably, a new low. A majority -- 56 percent -- view her unfavorably. Spelling Can Be Tricky: AFSCME has been stepping up their campaign spending, but it may want to make sure it knows who it is targeting. According to their FEC filing on Tuesday, they spent $238,000 on an ad targeting former "Rep. Tim Walburg, (R)" who is running against Rep. Mark Schauer (D-Mich.). The problem? It's Tim "WalBERG." White House Watch: Pres. Obama heads to Portland, Ore., on Wednesday for a rally for former Gov. John Kitzhaber (D), who is running for his old office. In 2008, you'll recall, Obama drew about 60,000 people to a rally in Oregon during his presidential bid. Vice Pres. Joe BIden, meanwhile, heads to Reno, Nev., for a rally for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D).
