Hotline Sort: When Haley Met Sally

4) The West Virginia AFL-CIO has endorsed gubernatorial candidate and State House Speaker Rick Thompson (D). 3) A new Mason-Dixon poll shows Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) in a dead heat with Rep. Denny Rehberg (R): 46 percent of voters who regularly vote in state elections said they would vote for Tester if the election were held today; 45 percent said they would vote for Rehberg. 2) Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) will announce today that he will not vote to raise the debt ceiling unless his vote is tied to a plan to fix the budget deficit for future generations. Manchin, who in recent weeks has not been shy about criticizing Obama, will deliver a speech to students at the University of Charleston this morning. Manchin's transparent telegraphing that he's breaking with the White House on a key fiscal issue is the latest sign that he feels he needs to establish himself as (easily) the most conservative Democrat in the chamber to win re-election in 2012. 1) Veteran GOP strategist Sally Bradshaw, an adviser to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) in 2008, is joining Barbour's political committee. Meanwhile, Barbour is headed to Nevada Tuesday to meet with Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) and some state legislators.
