Hotline Sort: The Sound of Silence

November 10, 2011
6) A Hart Research Associates poll conducted for the AFL-CIO found that 26 percent those who voted in 2010 for GOP Gov. John Kasich also voted to repeal SB 5 in Ohio. 5) Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., received praise in a joint release on Wednesday from House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions and Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan. "Todd Akin has been a great asset to the House Budget Committee. His principled approach to fiscal responsibility is exactly the kind of leadership America needs and I appreciate his hard work," Ryan said in a statement. Ryan spokesman Kevin Seifert cautioned that the statement is not an endorsement of Akin's candidacy. 4) Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., said on Wednesday he was a "bit too passionate" during an event with his constituents which was caught on video and has been making the rounds online. He also says he apologized to a woman "for getting a bit too passionate to which she smiled and did not mind at all." 3) Stonyfield Yogurt CEO Gary Hirshberg, also a wealthy Democratic donor, will not be running for governor of New Hampshire. 2) Consumer advocate and Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren's Senate campaign is warning supporters that Crossroads GPS has "bought hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of TV time, and you know they'll have money to stay on the air." Crossroads has not run ads in the race yet, but is expected to be a major player in the most competitive Senate races this cycle. 1) Wednesday night's debate will be remembered for one reason: Texas Gov. Rick Perry's "oops" moment, in which he was unable to name the third government agency he'd do away with. It's almost painful to watch. Perry has stumbled in debates before, but nothing like this. It's good news for Herman Cain; the allegations against him will (at least temporarily) be overshadowed today by Perry's gaffe. And Cain did not turn in a bad debate performance either. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney was once again steady during Wednesday's debate.
