Hotline Sort: Extreme Makeover, Campaign Edition

September 19, 2012
5) Romney's campaign is raising huge amounts of money but during the conventions, they didn't have access to much of it because it was only available during the general election period. So they took out a $20 million loan to tide them over until after the convention, when they could start using funds earmarked for the general election. The campaign has begun paying back the loan, but still owes $11 million. 4) Priorities USA, the super PAC supporting Obama, is up with an ad using the clip of Romney's "47 percent" comments. It's the first time the fundraiser has made it into paid advertising. 3) Mitt Romney, both in an attempt at damage control and as a campaign pivot, is out with an op-ed in USA Today where he concedes that government has "a role to play" in the helping struggling Americans. "Under President Obama, we have a stagnant economy that fosters government dependency. My policies will create a growing economy that fosters upward mobility," Romney writes. "Government has a role to play here. Right now, our nation's citizens do need help from government. But it is a very different kind of help than what President Obama wants to provide." 2) New polls out early on Wednesday show Obama opening up a significant lead in Wisconsin, but the race for the White House is within the margin of error in two other critical battleground states, Colorado and Virginia, Steve Shepard reports:

The CBS News/New York Times/Quinnipiac University surveys show that Obama has erased Romney's advantage in voters' perceptions of which candidate would do a better job handling the economy.
