A Republican ad buyer following the market pegs the buy at about $116,000 from July 31 to August 6. Republican nominee Heather Wilson is running an ad attacking Democratic Rep. Martin Heinrich, as is Crossroads GPS. 4) The North Dakota Democratic Party released a poll Friday conducted by DFM Research that shows Democratic Senate nominee Heidi Heitkamp leading Republican Rep. Rick Berg 50 percent to 44 percent.

His trip abroad continues with a third and final stop in Poland Monday. 1) Bill Clinton will play a leading role at the Democratic Convention. The New York Times:

The prominent role of Mr. Clinton, which is scheduled to be announced on Monday, signals an effort by the Obama campaign to pull out all the stops to rally Democrats when they gather for their party's national convention in Charlotte, N.C. An even more important audience will be the voters across the country who will see the address carried by television networks.

Vice President Biden and President Obama will both speak on the final night of the convention.
