Hotline Sort: Allen Ties Kaine to Obama

7) In Arizona, a new Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee IE ad asking what GOP Rep. Jeff Flake would "cost you." It hits him on voting against protecting returning vets from foreclosures, against making insurance companies cover minimum hospital stays for breast cancer, and on supporting a "radical budget" that would raise Medicare costs by $6,400 a year. 6) And new DSCC IE commercial in Connecticut, as well, hitting Linda McMahon on Social Security and saying she's "in it for herself, not for you." Meanwhile, some Connecticut Republicans were upset with a McMahon ad featuring voters saying they planned to vote for President Obama and McMahon. 5) And Majority PAC launched new television ads in the Montana and Virginia Senate races. The Montana ad hits GOP Rep. Denny Rehberg on familiar themes: Voting for education and veteran benefit cuts, but also for tax breaks for millionaires and pay raises for himself. The Virginia ad hits GOP nominee George Allen on spending, saying his budgets plan cuts Medicare and Social Security to pay for tax breaks for the rich. 4) Also in Virginia: Allen is up with a new spot tying his Democratic opponent Tim Kaine to Obama. It charges that he abandoned Virginia to put the president's "harmful agenda" first. Supported "failed stimulus," "national energy tax," "government takeover of health care," and deal that led to defense cuts, threatening Virginia jobs. The ad uses a clip of Kaine saying he's "doing what the president wants me to do." 3) New House Majority PAC ads out today in seven districts. 2) Obama's campaign is releasing a booklet called "Blueprint for America's Future" and airing a new television ad, featuring the president speaking to the camera outlining his priorities for a second term. 1) Obama and Romney met for their final debate last night, where the two sparred over foreign policy. The Washington Post:

Romney appeared cautious, especially during the early stages of the debate, but grew more assertive as the evening went on. Throughout the debate, Obama seemed eager and ready to take the fight to his opponent, drawing on his experience to draw contrasts with the challenger. At times, as Romney offered pointed criticism of his policies, Obama glared directly at him.

Walmart moms gave Obama the edge, and post-debate polls showed an Obama victory. And here are 5 debate takeaways from Ron Brownstein.
