Hotline Sort: Linda Lingle, RINO

7) An NPR report raises some new questions about Sen. Marco Rubio's, R-Fla., account of his family's travels between Cuba and the U.S. 6) Ohio Republican Senate candidate Kevin Coughlin has filed a termination report with the FEC. It's good news for GOP state Treasurer Josh Mandel, who is now running unopposed for the Republican nomination against Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. 5) EMILY's List will endorse Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif., today - their first endorsement this cycle for a House incumbent, as the seven-term Democrat faces a dramatically redrawn district and a strong challenge from former Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado, who's put more than $500,000 into his own campaign so far. EMILY's List first endorsed Capps during her 1998 campaign, when she won a special Congressional election. 4) Missouri Congressional candidate Ann Wagner told Roll Call there's no way she's running for the Senate, even though she outraised the Republican field against Sen. Claire McCaskilll, D-Mo., in the last fundraising quarter. "Absolutely, positively, unequivocally will not be running for the United States Senate," she said. Wagner is facing attorney Ed Martin in Missouri's Second District Republican primary. She has raised over $1 million for the House race so far. 3) "Rude, unprofessional, dishonest," are some of the adjectives used by five former New Hampshire staffers who worked for Rep. Michele Bachmann's, R-Minn., to describe the treatment they received from the congresswoman's national campaign team. 2) Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., is denying a claim being made by Steve Wynn (of the Wynn Hotel and Casino) that in a private conversation, she justified supporting President Obama's health care law out of fear of punishment from now House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. 1) Texas Gov. Rick Perry will roll out his "Cut, Balance and Grow" economic plan later today. The Texas governor lays out his proposal in a Wall Street Journal op-ed this morning, in which he writes that his plan will give Americans a choice between a 20 percent flat tax or their current rate. This week marks a new phase of Perry's campaign. He's buying ad time in Iowa, rolling out his most notable policy plan to date and is taking on new staff. These developments come on the heels of Herman Cain's struggles to explain his stance on abortion and a debate in which Cain was the target of a lot of criticism. It's Perry's moment to capitalize-- which makes his continued references to the Obama birther issue perplexing. -- Jessica Taylor contributed
