3) Fresh off winning the Conservative Party's backing, Republican Jane Corwin
is up with her first television ad

2) After Heller made his Senate bid official
Tuesday, he picked up endorsements

(R) and Lieutenant Gov. Brian Krolicki

1) Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour

Barbour: "I don't think our mission should be to think we're going to make Afghanistan an Ireland or an Italy" or a Western-style democracy." Quite the break from the rest of the Republican presidential field, but it comes as several polls show a clear majority of Americans support pulling troops out Afghanistan.
