Hotline Sort: Christie, Losing Ground in the Veepstakes

June 18, 2012
5) Former Rep. Chris Shays has not placed any ad buys yet, not a good sign for his Connecticut Senate campaign as he tries to chase down well-funded Linda McMahon in the polls before the August primary election. 4) As the July 31 runoff approaches, it will be worth watching to see how underdog Ted Cruz's fundraising stacks up against David Dewhurst's dollars. Dewhurst can self-fund and Cruz will never catch him dollar for dollar, but the Texas Tribune reports that representatives of Cruz's campaign said it has averaged 173 donations a day since the primary -- an encouraging sign for his chances. 3) The Democratic-aligned outside group Majority PAC is taking to the airwaves in Virginia, with a new spot reminding voters that only one candidate in the race has served in Congress: Former GOP Sen. George Allen. The ad is a response to Crossroads, which recently went back on the air in Virginia with a spot going after former Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine. 2) Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass, expressed his disapproval of Obama's announcement on Friday that he would stop deporting illegal immigrants who were brought here as children, so long as certain requirements are met. The Boston Herald reports the senator blasted the president for "sidestepping Congress" and called his new policy "unfair to the millions of immigrants who are playing by the rules and waiting patiently to enter the country legally. 1) Meanwhile, while he accused the president of playing politics, Mitt Romney, appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," Romney declined to say whether he would reverse Obama's immigration order. For Romney, Obama's announcement presents a challenging task: How to draw a distinction with the president without alienating Hispanic voters.
