Hotline Sort: The Full Nelson

5) He's seeing some momentum in the polls lately, and now Newt Gingrich is seeing two former Iowa staffers who quit over the summer return to his campaign. 4) Herman Cain is the first Republican presidential candidate this year to receive Secret Service protection. 3) In a big blow to Republicans including Gov. Jan Brewer, on Thursday, the Arizona Supreme Court reinstated the chair of the Independent Redistricting Commission who was ousted by Brewer and Republicans in the state legislature. "The clearest victim in this matter is a redistricting process that voters intended to be honest, impartial and transparent. In the coming days, I'll be considering my options as to how best to proceed," Brewer said in a statement on Thursday night. If she is not able to overturn the decision, Democrats will move closer to winning a big victory over a map that Republicans don't like. 2) A second poll shows a close race in Florida: A statewide poll of likely voters in Florida conducted Nov. 13-15 by Wilson Perkins Allen Opinion Research, a firm that conducts polls for Republican candidates, shows Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson leads Republican Rep. Connie Mack 45 percent to 39 percent, with both candidates sporting a high 96 percent name ID figure. Quinnipiac also recently polled the matchup and also found a close race between Mack and Nelson. 1) Potential good news for Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind.: Howey Politics Indiana reports that wealthy Auto dealer Bob Thomas could join the GOP Senate primary and will make a final decision after Thanksgiving. If he does run, he could split up the anti-Lugar vote with Treasurer Richard Mourdock.
