Hotline Sort: Baucus, On The Defensive

4) The New York Times reports that Gabrielle Giffords appears to be holding on to much of the nearly $1 million left in her campaign account, leaving open the possibility for another run for office in the future. 3) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett offered a pledge on Sunday not to attack fellow Democrats in the governor's and he asked his opponents to agree to do the same. Former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, declined to sign the proposal. Don't be fooled: This primary will likely get nasty. Labor likes Falk, not Barrett, and will spend big bucks to get that message across. 2) The Wall Street Journal spots an effort from congressional Republicans and Romney's campaign to pitch Hispanic-friendly policy proposals. 1) 2014 is just around the corner in Montana: Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, is spending $25,000 to air a radio ad touting his role in the payroll tax cut deal. Baucus is running for reelection in 2014, and there is speculation he could face a primary challenge from outgoing Gov. Brian Schweitzer (a popular figure in Montana). Recognizing his own potential vulnerability, Baucus is preparing the ground early.
