Hotline Sort: Raise The Stakes

April 21, 2011
5) Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson (R) is expected to announce his presidential campaign Thursday in the Granite State. 4) Nevada GOP Chair Mark Amodei will reportedly run for the seat being vacated by Rep. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), who is running for the Senate. It's getting to be a crowded GOP field, 2010 Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle is already in the race, as is retired Navy Cmdr. Kirk Lippold (R). Another name to keep an eye on is Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki (R). Krolicki won't announce his decision until after the state's legislative session ends in June. A crowded GOP field would, at least on paper, boost Angle's prospects. 3) As we reported Wednesday afternoon, Democrat-backed candidate and state Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg requested a recount in Wisconsin's high-stakes Supreme Court race. GOP-backed Justice David Prosser edged out Kloppenburg by 7,316 votes in the race. The state's Government Accountability Board said the recount will start next week, at taxpayers' expense. Both candidates can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money during the recount. 2) Organizers in Wisconsin say they'll submit recall petitions today against three Democratic state senators. There have been efforts to recall state senators in both parties following the legislative showdown over collective bargaining rights for public workers earlier this year. Thus far, the only signature filings have been against GOP state senators. 1) Kentucky Senate President and gubernatorial candidate David Williams' (R) campaign reported Wednesday that he raised nearly $450,000 during the first quarter of 2011 and $1.2 million overall. But he trails Gov. Steve Beshear (D), who raised $1.2 million during the first quarter and $4.8 million overall. Beshear has a big cash advantage, with $3.3 million in the bank, compared to Williams' $670,000. Williams is the frontrunner in the GOP race while Beshear is unopposed on the Democratic side.
