Hotline Sort: Peyton Place

5) First-term New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo continues to enjoy very impressive approval ratings. According to the latest Quinnipiac University survey, 68 percent of voters approve of the job Cuomo is doing while just 17 percent disapprove. 4) Ricardo Sanchez is out in Texas, but here are two new names in the Democratic Senate race: Former state House Public Education Chairman Paul Sadler and Houston attorney Jason Gibson. 3) Missouri Republican businessman John Brunner has been calling for debates against his Republican Senate opponents ... except he won't be participating in a debate next month. "@BrunnerforMO won't debate. He was for it before he was against it. Who's kicking the can down the road now? #mosen #channelingjohnkerry," tweeted former Republican Treasurer Sarah Steelman, in response. 2) The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised the National Republican Congressional Committee by $1 million during November, bringing in $4.1 million to the NRCC's $3.1 million. The GOP campaign committee still has more money in the bank heading into 2012 -- $14.5 million to the DCCC's $10.24 million. But in the minority, Democrats have outraised their majority party counterparts overall this year, raising $56.18 million to the Republican's $51.8 million. In addition, the NRCC paid off its remaining $500,000 in debt at the end of November, the DCCC still has $670,000 in debt, but will pay off that remaining sum - after starting the year $19 million in debt - by the end of the year. 1) The Hotline's Steven Shepard has a look at several new polls, all of which show Romney and Newt Gingrich either tied or running neck-and-neck. In the new ABC News/Washington Post survey, the two are each at 30 percent. They are also tied at 28 percent in the latest CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday, while the latest Gallup tracking poll, conducted Dec. 13-18, shows Gingrich leading the former Bay State governor by just two points. -- Jessica Taylor contributed
