Starting Lineup: The Calm Before The Storm

Too Little, Too Late? Rhode Island Treasurer and Democratic gubernatorial contender Frank Caprio issued a quasi-apology for telling Pres. Obama to "shove" his endorsement late Sunday. "The way the White House announced that there would be no endorsement caught me by surprise," Caprio said in a statement. "I wish I had chosen different language, but now the focus has to be on what is important to Rhode Islanders."

White House Watch: Pres. Obama wrapped up his last campaign swing on Sunday and will be in D.C. on Monday. Vice Pres. Joe Biden heads to Burlington, Vt., for a rally for Democratic gubernatorial contender Peter Shumlin. Biden will then head to his home town, Wilmington, Del., for another rally.

First Lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, will headline events in Philadelphia and Las Vegas.
