Hotline Sort: Wamp, There It Is

October 3, 2011
5) The Miami Herald reports that according to Univision insiders and members of Sen. Marco Rubio's, R-Fla., staff, days before the network aired a controversial story over the summer about the decades-old drug bust of Rubio's brother-in-law, Univision's president of news offered to soften or not run the story, if Rubio agreed to appear on Al Punto. Issac Lee, the president of news said the network "did not offer to soften or spike a story." 4) Texas Gov. Rick Perry and his team were on defense Sunday following a Washington Post report that suggested Perry hosted colleagues at a hunting ground once known by a racial slur that was painted on a rock near its entrance. The Post reported Perry has called the name "offensive" and said his father painted over the word shortly after leasing the land, but that the account differs from the recollections of seven people cited in the story. 3) Meanwhile, Perry, who has been criticized by Republicans for not being tough enough on immigration and border security, also made some policy news over the weekend, saying on Saturday that if elected president, he would consider sending U.S. troops into Mexico to help fight drug cartels and improve border security. 2) In West Virginia over the weekend, Republicans continued to make their late push to try to tie acting Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin to President Obama while Tomblin kept his focus on state issues. Tomblin would not commit to voting for Obama next year, when asked directly on Saturday. Early voting wrapped up over the weekend and Democrats cast over 32,000 ballots (or 56.7 percent) while over 19,000 (or 34.9 percent) ballots were from Republicans. The voter registration breakdown in the state is 53/29 D/R. 1) Christie-watch continues, and a decision may be coming soon. On Sunday, the New York Times reported that advisers to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were working to determine whether they could move fast enough to set up effective political operations in Iowa and New Hampshire. The Wall Street Journal reports Christie is expected to announce within days whether he will join the race. It's not yet clear what he is leaning toward announcing; about the only thing that is certain is that he's considering it as seriously as he ever has.
