Hotline Sort: Chamber Mails for Lugar

5) The Eric Cantor-supported YG Action Fund super PAC is spending $53,000 on a 60-second radio ad for Richard Hudson ahead of the GOP primary in North Carolina's 8th District. Club for Growth has spent almost $265,000 backing another candidate, Scott Keadle. This newest expenditure means YGAF has invested almost $76,000 on the other side so far. It's the first open primary YGAF is playing in. 4) The Boston Herald reports on the latest explanation from Elizabeth Warren about why she enrolled as a minority in a law school directory. "I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group, something that might happen with people who are like I am," Warren said. "Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it, and so I stopped checking it off." Sen. Scott Brown, meanwhile, called for further investigation, saying "I think that she needs to answer the questions that are still lingering out there that's for sure." 3) The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is trying to make a late push on behalf of Sen. Richard Lugar, sending out a direct mail item touting his record on jobs. 2) Not the kind of distraction Team Romney needs as it continues to push ahead against President Obama with an eye on the general election: The New York Times is out with an A1 story that takes a closer look at the departure of Richard Grenell from the campaign. 1) Meanwhile, with most of the national focus this week put squarely on the one year anniversary of the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden, Romney was in Virginia on Wednesday, where his focus was on the economy. As other non-economic issues come up in the campaign, look for Romney to continue to try to steer the conversation toward jobs, the unemployment rate and the larger economy. -- Scott Bland contributed
