What We Learned: Paging Dr. Carmona

-- Speaking of close races, no one is surprised when Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., and Sen. Dean Heller, D-Nev., are neck-and-neck in polling, fundraising and other metrics. That's why it was surprising to see Berkley nearly double up the Republican in fundraising during the latest period. -- On the fundraising front in the rest of the Senate races, there are still many outstanding questions that can be asked about several races. How did the entire GOP field do (we're looking at you, Missouri, Florida and Nebraska)? How will the dominant forces in the second quarter follow up their impressive showings (We're looking at you Josh Mandel)? Will candidates who have struggled to keep pace so far turn things around (Richard Mourdock, Susan Bysiewicz, Sarah Steelman)? -- West Virginia was close, but Democrat Earl Ray Tomblin managed to squeak out a narrow victory. Two other pols in the state -- who hail from different parties -- should be encouraged by Tuesday's result. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., has to be smiling about the renewed success of the moderate model he used in 2010. Meanwhile, Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., found some a positive takeaway in the outcome as well: Republican Bill Maloney carried the 1st District by nearly six points.
