5) In the Virginia Senate race, Democratic nominee Tim Kaine released yet another new television ad this morning, touting his record on energy. 4) In North Dakota's Senate race, Democratic nominee Heidi Heitkamp is launching a new television ad highlighting her independence, saying she stood up to President Obama on the Keystone XL pipeline and a balanced budget. "I approve this message, because I'll only answer to you," she concludes in the ad. 3) The Boston Globe reports that in Scott Brown's recent campaign ad he says Obama signed an insider trading bill he filed into law -- but Brown's bill was not, in fact, signed into law. 2) Majority PAC and the SEIU launched a new television ad, saying Republican nominee Tommy Thompson promised to cut taxes for special interests as a Washington insider. Like recent spots from the DSCC and Democratic nominee Tammy Baldwin, this ad is focused on his time in Washington rather than his long tenure as governor. "While we're cutting coupons around the dinner table, Thompson's cutting deals around boardroom tables," says the narrator. 1) Obama returns political fire against Mitt Romney, in an interview with CBS News, responding to Romney's criticism regarding the violence in Egypt and Libya: "And I -- you know, Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. And as president, one of the things I've learned is you can't do that. That, you know, it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts. And that you've thought through the ramifications before you make 'em."
