Hotline Sort: Case Study

6) Scoring an easy victory, Colorado Republican Party legal counsel Ryan Call was elected the new chairman of the state GOP after just one round of voting. Call campaigned by saying the party needs to do a better job reaching out to Latinos and unaffiliated voters. 5) At a conference sponsored by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) in Des Moines on Saturday, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) focused solely on fiscal conservatism while former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R), Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Herman Cain stressed the need for Republicans to focus on social values and economic issues. 4) Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman nominated for national office by a major party, died Saturday. 3) Former Rep. Ed Case (D-Hawaii) told supporters in an email Saturday that he will decide by mid-April whether to run for the Senate. He also said that a poll he commissioned shows he performs best among Democrats against former Gov. Linda Lingle (R), who is also mulling a bid and would be the GOP front-runner if she runs. 2) The Supreme Court will hear arguments today about whether Arizona's matching funds program -- which allows candidates participating in the Clean Elections program to get additional campaign funding if another candidate not participating in the program spends more money -- violates the First Amendment. 1) Obama will address the nation with an update on the situation in Libya tonight. He will be speaking at National Defense University, and not from the Oval Office. The president has faced criticism for not getting approval from Congress for taking military action and for not being clear about the mission. While Obama's words will be carefully monitored, so too will the reactions from the prospective presidential candidates. Gingrich's recent flip on the situation in Libya garnered widespread coverage and each of the major candidates will be under the microscope as they respond to Obama's remarks.
