Hotline Sort: Talking That Blah, Blah, Blah

5) Indiana's WISH-TV reports that Richard Mourdock raised a paltry $330,000 in the 3rd quarter -- not including the $100,000 of his own money, ending the period with $301,000 in the bank. That's well short of the $840,000 Sen. Richard Lugar brought in. 4) Texas Gov. Rick Perry's wife, Anita Perry, said on Thursday that she and her husband had been "brutalized" by fellow Republicans and the media and suggested the attacks were linked to his Christian faith. 3) Here's an issue worth keeping an eye on in the Massachusetts Senate race. The Boston Herald reports that on Thursday Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren left the door open to military action against Iran in the face of that country's growing nuclear threat. Warren, at a campaign stop: "Our number one responsibility is to protect Americans from terrorism, that's our job, so being tough on terrorism is enormously important." Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., has made homeland security a focal point of his tenure in the Senate. 2) According to the latest National Journal/Allstate Heartland Monitor poll, 50 percent of registered voters disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president while 44 percent approve. Forty-one percent say they will definitely or probably vote to reelect the president, while 51 percent say they will definitely or probably vote to elect someone else. 1) It's not often that you see a joint appearance made outside of D.C. by a president and a visiting head of state. But that's exactly what Obama and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak will be doing today when are they promote their new trade deal in a visit to an auto plant in Michigan.
