Hotline Sort: Granholm Flashback

4) New NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist surveys out last night in the Virginia, Ohio, and Florida Senate races: In Virginia, George Allen and Tim Kaine are in a 46-46 dead heat. In Ohio, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown leads Treasurer Josh Mandel by 7 points. And in Florida, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson leads GOP Rep. Connie Mack by double digits. They also polled the presidential race -- check it out here. 3) The National Republican Senatorial Committee ad in Maine hits Independent former Gov. Angus King: "King used his political connections to get a taxpayer-backed loan for his windmill business," says the narrator. The ad also "attacks" Democratic nominee Cynthia Dill, but the ad emphasizes her Democratic credentials. (He's called "millionaire" Angus King, she's called "Democrat" Cynthia Dill). "Democrat Dill supports Obama's tax increases and Obama's stimulus," says the narrator. "She's liberal. He's changed," the ad concludes. It's a state where Obama is expected to win and Republicans have to pin their Senate hopes on Democrats voting for Dill rather than King. 2) Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will start receiving regular intelligence briefings next week, the Washington Post reports. 1) President Obama will be in Wisconsin for a fundraiser September 22, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports -- his first visit to the state since February.
