Hotline Sort: The Hatch Act

March 5, 2012
4) American Action Network is going up with a TV buy (800 points) and Internet ad campaign in support of Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. There are a lot of tea party organizers/groups and others who would like to see Hatch go down this year, but don't lose sight of the fact that he is not without his own influential backers. 3) President Obama addressed AIPAC on Sunday, declaring that he would not tolerate a nuclear Iran and would use military force, if necessary, to prevent that from occurring, the New York Times reports. But Obama also made clear that he did not believe that a strike on Iran would serve the interests of either the United States or Israel. 2) House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., threw their support behind Mitt Romney over the weekend. Yes, endorsements are often over-hyped, but these suggest the growing establishment (public) support for Romney, which could not come at a more crucial time for the frontrunner. They also suggest that there is a growing sense that Romney could soon seal up the nomination and that now is an opportune time to help boost him across the finish line. 1) Super Tuesday is just a day away, and no state will receive more scrutiny and analysis than Ohio, where the latest polling shows a neck-and-neck race between Rick Santorum and Romney, who won the Washington state caucuses on Saturday. But Alex Roarty flags two important factors working in the former governor's favor: -- Only 44 percent of Ohio GOP voters identified as evangelicals in the 2008 Republican presidential primary, according to exit polls, a much lower percentage than South Carolina or Iowa. -- $3.6 million is the amount that has been spent by Romney's campaign and the super PAC supporting him. By comparison, the pro-Santorum super PAC has spent just over $500,000.
