4) Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, says he will not formally endorse a Senate candidate in the Democratic primary in Hawaii, but prefers Rep. Mazie Hirono and plans to vote for her. Asked by Honolulu Civil Beat if it would be fair to say that he hopes Hirono wins, Inouye replied: "I think so. I'm being honest with you." Even if it's not an official endorsement, it more or less amounts to one. It's also not surprising; the rocky relationship between Inouye and former Rep. Ed Case is no secret. 3) Former Mark Neumann's, R-Wis., Senate campaign announced on Thursday that it collected $300,000 in September. Neumann officially announced he was running on Aug. 29. He also has the ability to self-fund, though his campaign says none of the $300,000 came from the candidate himself. 2) Sarah Palin is not running for president in 2012.
