What We Learned: A Sign of the Times

-- Elizabeth Warren knows how to money bomb: She raised $1.2 million in a single day earlier this week. No wonder Republicans are starting to sound downright pessimistic about Sen. Scott Brown's chances. Brown has a ton of cash, but Warren is catching up -- quickly. -- Speaking of fundraising, the flow of money has slowed considerably in the Florida GOP Senate race. It was only a couple of quarters ago that former Sen. George LeMieux raised $950,000. He brought in less than half that amount -- $388,000 -- during the fourth quarter of 2011. Florida's not cheap and Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson has $8.5 million in the bank, two factors adding insult to injury for the Republican candidates. -- Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's stint in Richmond can be marked by consistency, political prowess and knowing when to pick fights to maximize his clout. His gubernatorial campaign has showcased none of these attributes. Since declaring his bid in December, he flip-flopped on the issue of ballot access for the March 6 presidential primary, raised less money in the fourth quarter than his rival, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, and was slammed by a WTOP report this week accusing him of making four false claims regarding how Washington, D.C. handles rats.
