Hotline Sort: Rubio Rising

March 22, 2012
4) Former Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey can appear on the May 15 ballot in Nebraska, a judge ruled on Wednesday, rejecting a Republican complaint about Kerrey's residency. 3) The Progressive Change Campaign Committee took a parting shot at Illinois 10th District Democratic nominee Brad Schneider (who beat liberal favorite Ilya Sheyman) in a memo on Wednesday, saying "last night's election was a success for progressive messaging. Following Ilya's lead, Ilya's opponent plastered the word 'progressive' on his ads and literature, claimed he was not a Blue Dog (even though he is), and adopted much of Ilya's rhetoric about protecting Social Security and Medicare. Last night was a victory for those trying to imitate progressives." Schneider's race against Republican Rep. Robert Dold will be one of this cycle's marquee House campaigns, and Schneider will need liberals to come around and support him eventually. 2) The League of Conservation Voters is spending over $300,000 on television ads touting Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. 1) Jeb Bush, who endorsed Mitt Romney on Wednesday, wants him to pick Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., as his running mate. "He is the best orator of American politics today, a good family man. He is not only a consistent conservative, but he has managed to find a way to communicate a conservative message full of hope and optimism," Bush told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Wednesday was also a reminder that in politics, your fortunes can change as quickly as someone opens their mouth. With the Bush endorsement and a victory in Illinois, things were looking pretty good for Romney -- but when Eric Fehrnstrom suggested that Romney's positions could change like an Etch A Sketch, he sucked up all of the oxygen.
