4) It's been a rough couple of weeks for Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass. Now a Democratic group is accusing him of plagiarism. A message to students on Brown's official website contained the exact same words as remarks by former Sen. Elizabeth Dole, R-N.C., at her campaign kickoff in 2002. Brown's staff acknowledged the words originally were Dole's and said their presence in Brown's message was the result of a technical error, the Boston Globe reported. 3) More primary calendar tussling: New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner is asking Nevada -- which has set its presidential caucus for Jan. 14 -- to move back to Jan. 17 or later. If they don't? Well, Gardner says a December Granite State primary just might be in the cards. Nevada doesn't sound like it's willing to budge. 2) The Republican National Committee brought in its highest amount for a month during a non-election year -- $9.1 million in September. The RNC ended the month with $11.4 million in the bank and brought its debt down to $14.5 million. 1) President Obama's campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised a combined $70 million dollars during the third quarter. Roughly $42.7 million came from the Obama campaign and $27.3 million came from the DNC. Pretty good numbers, considering the typically slower summer months and the debt ceiling debate that prevented Obama from headlining fundraisers for part of the quarter.
