Hotline Sort: Massachusetts Ad Blitz

June 11, 2012
5) Democrats remain committed to courting and turning out Hispanic voters, who typically favor the party's candidates. Today is a good example: A pro-Obama super PAC and the SEIU are launching a $4 million ad campaign in Colorado, Florida and Nevada, the Washington Post reports. 4) After Gov. Scott Walker won the Wisconsin recall election last week, DCCC Chair Steve Israel was one of the most prominent Democrats to come out and say the huge spending disparity in the race, rooted in massive GOP-outside group dollars, should serve as a wake-up call for Democrats about the need for a more aggressive air campaign. He tells Roll Call in a piece out today that "Everything that we have done that is in our control, we have met or exceeded expectations. We have outraised the Republicans, we have out-recruited them and we have out-messaged them. ... But I know that those super PACs are going to sweep in and spend tens of millions of dollars in stealth money supported by corporate interests, and try to steal this election away from us." 3) Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., and Elizabeth Warren are out with competing TV ads today. Each of the spots are positive: Brown's is making a play for women voters with two spots that feature his wife for the first time this cycle while Warren strikes a populist tone with a spot railing against Washington's prioritization of big corporations and oil companies. If the agreement between Brown and Warren to curb the influence of outside groups holds up, candidate ads will matter a lot more in this race than in others, and positive spots won't be drowned out by the typically negative tone of third-party ads. 2) The Hotline's latest Veepstakes power rankings are out. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio. is still on top, but Tim Pawlenty has inched his way up from #5 to #2, as sources say he is getting more attention than conventional wisdom holds. Check out the full list here. 1) Major story out of Southern California with the potential to overshadow most other Obama administration news this week: CNN reports Secretary of Commerce John Bryson was cited with felony hit-and-run after allegedly causing two accidents. The Los Angeles Times has more here.
