Hotline Sort: Something Old, Something LeMieux

4) House Race Hotline Editor Jessica Taylor finds that the list of candidates filing early for next year's congressional campaigns is filled with women. And the first two special elections of the year also have a woman's touch. Check out the full story here. 3) National Journal's Ron Brownstein looks at the latest Census numbers and concludes that the higher-than-expected growth among non-whites could put some long-time Republican strongholds in play for President Obama. "The evolving demography will change the electoral calculus, at least somewhat, in the vast majority of states," writes Brownstein. We've got a map showing that in some states, Obama can win with less than 30 percent of the white vote. 2) Obama's Libya policy is getting a little backup from two senators this morning. Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) write in the Wall Street Journal: "We cannot guarantee the success of the Libyan revolution, but we have prevented what was, barely a week ago, its imminent destruction. That is why the president was right to intervene. He now deserves our support as we and our coalition partners do all that is necessary to help the Libyan people secure a future of freedom." 1) The St. Petersburg Times reports that former Sen. George LeMieux (R-Fla.) is set to enter the Senate race; the buzz is LeMieux will make the announcement next week. State Senate President Mike Haridopolos (R) is already in the race, though his campaign has gotten off to a rocky start. Former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner (R) has formed an exploratory committee, while Rep. Connie Mack (R) -- who many expected to make a bid -- recently took himself out of the running.
