Hotline Sort: Welcome Back, Charlie Crist

5) Sen. Jon Tester's, D-Mont., campaign is running a full page ad in the Great Falls Tribune in honor of Sen. John McCain campaigning for GOP Rep. Denny Rehberg Friday. The ad welcomes McCain to Montana and thanks him for "standing with Montanans against Citizens United," and then hitting Rehberg for supporting the "dangerous, out of touch" Supreme Court decision. 4) Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the ranking Democrat on the Budget Committee, will play Paul Ryan in mock debates with Vice President Biden. 3) The New York Times reports on Mitt Romney's transition team:

Mr. Romney's transition team, which has quietly been ramping up since June, is an extension of his campaign and reflects many hallmarks of the Romney operation -- methodical and disciplined, with acute attention to detail. The team also offers a glimpse of what might be Mr. Romney's approach to governing, functioning much like his old private equity firm, Bain Capital. The team is assessing the government and looking for ways to make it more efficient and streamlined.

2) President Obama's campaign manager Jim Messina wrote to Romney's campaign manager asking Romney to release five years of tax returns -- and saying if he does so, they won't criticize him for not releasing more. 1) The Obama campaign is up with its first television ad attacking the Ryan plan. The ad invokes the AARP in defense of the President's health care plan, citing the group saying the plan "cracks down on Medicare fraud, waste, and abuse" and "strengthens guaranteed benefits," while also saying the Ryan plan would "undermine" Medicare and "lead to higher costs for seniors.
