Hotline Sort: Heinrich's Momentum

5) The focus has been on September 25 as the deadline for GOP Senate nominee Todd Akin to drop out of the race -- but is it actually several days earlier? The St. Louis Beacon:

Although Sept. 25 is attracting attention as the legal deadline for Republican U.S. Senate nominee Todd Akin to seek a court order to drop out, Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan says that other legal deadlines actually kick in a few days earlier. ... She explained that, by federal law, Missouri paper ballots to be mailed to eligible voters in the military and overseas must be sent out by Sept. 22. Because that's a Saturday, she expects most local election authorities to send out the ballots by Friday, Sept. 21. ... As a result, any post-Sept. 21 decision by Akin to go to court to drop out by Sept. 25 would mean that his name would remain on the military and overseas ballots. And any new ballots sent out with his replacement's name would then violate the Sept. 22 requirement.
