Hotline Sort: Winners and Losers

4) More GOP convention speakers announced Wednesday: Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Texas Senate Nominee Ted Cruz, Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuño, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens. 3) Former Rep. Jay Inslee led all contenders, including Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna, in Washington State's all-party primary Tuesday as the two heavyweights run for governor. As of late Tuesday night, Inslee led McKenna by a 46.7 percent to 42.9 percent margin. In Washington's primary system, a voter can pick between every candidate on the ballot, instead of being limited to a single party's slate. Tuesday's result is good news for Inslee, who trailed McKenna in most public polling this year. 2) Lots of coverage to check out from Tuesday's Michigan and Missouri primaries: Rep. Gary Peters, D-Mich., defeated fellow Democratic Rep. Hansen Clarke in a member-versus-member primary in Michigan's 14th Congressional District. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., defeated fellow Democratic Rep. Russ Carnahan in a member-versus-member primary in Missouri's 1st Congressional District. Former Michigan Rep. Pete Hoesktra easily defeated opponent Clark Durant in the primary for the Senate GOP nomination. Reps. Fred Upton, R-Mich., and John Conyers, D-Mich., get renominated. And tea party candidate Kerry Bentivolio won the Republican primary in Michigan's 11th District Tuesday night. 1) In Missouri's GOP Senate primary, Rep. Todd Akin pulled off the upset and will face Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. Akin is the Republican McCaskill and Democrats preferred as a general election opponent. McCaskill's campaign is launching this morning.
