Hotline Sort: Raising Arizona

6) Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is moving his presidential campaign headquarters from Florida to New Hampshire. 5) Many Republicans have already written off David Williams' chances in the Kentucky governor's race, but one GOP group -- Restoring America Inc. -- is spending big on his behalf. The group has bought more than $668,000 in broadcast time, including heavy buys in Louisville and Lexington. The campaign involves at least four different TV ads and one radio spot, several of which aim to link Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear to Obama. 4) According to a new CNN/ORC International Poll, 90 percent of Americans say economic conditions remains poor -- a high during Obama's presidency and an increase from 81 percent in June. 3) Tuesday's special gubernatorial election in West Virginia has been declared an official state holiday and state employees will be given the day off. Meanwhile, the push from Republicans to nationalize the race continues. "This is becoming a huge national event," GOP nominee Bill Maloney told the Charleston Daily Mail. "It's the next transformational election in our country." 2) The Boston Globe reports that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is on pace to raise between $11 million and $13 million in the third quarter. That's less than the $18.2 million he pulled in during the second quarter, but would still represent a solid haul, especially within a growing field that has not been raising much. The most anticipated figure will be Texas Gov. Rick Perry's, especially considering reports that he raised $20 million in just a three day period. 1) The New York Times reports that Obama is charting an alternative path to reelection in the case that he is unable to win Ohio and other industrial midwestern states. Obama is fighting hard for Southern and Rocky Mountain states he won in 2008, and some he did not.
