Hotline Sort: Supreme Confusion In Texas

December 12, 2011
4) Newt Gingrich has hired Jose Mallea in Florida. It's a big get for the surging GOP frontrunner: Mallea worked for Republican Sen. Marco Rubio in 2010. 3) The door was left ajar, but now it appears to be closed. Missouri Republican Ed Martin, is sticking with his race against former Ambassador Ann Wagner in the 2nd District, as his spokesman says he will not be running for governor. 2) The Supreme Court's decision to grant a stay on interim Texas redistricting maps on Friday is an encouraging development for Republicans. Oral arguments before the court form both sides will begin on Jan. 9. The decision also upends the filing deadline for congressional races as well as, potentially, the primaries themselves in March. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott will ask a federal court Monday to temporarily suspend the deadlines for the candidate filing period for congressional and state House and Senate races. 1) The one soundbite played routinely from Saturday's Republican presidential debate was Mitt Romney's $10,000 challenge to Texas Gov. Rick Perry over his position on the individual mandate. It was a double whammy against Romney, who usually has come across well at the debates. It reminded voters of his wealth and also of the one issue that's been dogging his campaign from the outset. Gingrich performed well, and delivered another memorable zinger against Romney, reminding the former Massachusetts governor that he would be a career politician if it wasn't for his loss to former Sen. Edward Kennedy. It's looking increasingly likely that Gingrich has staying power; even the DNC launched a Newt attack over the weekend, calling him the "Tea Party front-runner."
