Hotline Sort: Etched In The Granite State

5) In case you only watched the VP debate last night, there were several other forums in Senate and gubernatorial races too. Here's a wrap: In Washington's gubernatorial race, GOP Attorney General Rob McKenna and former Rep. Jay Inslee faced off. In Connecticut, Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy and former WWE CEO Linda McMahon did too. And in New Mexico's Senate race, Democratic Rep. Martin Heinrich and former GOP Rep. Heather Wilson debated for the first time. 4) And a special flag for the Nevada Senate debate last night, where the power went out -- just as GOP Sen. Dean Heller and Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley began to discuss energy policy. The Las Vegas Sun:

"We need to go after our own oil, our own coal, our own natural gas, our own alternative energy ..." Heller said just before the power died. Berkley quipped: "We could use some now," to laughter from the audience at the Vegas PBS studio.

3) New ad out from Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., hitting GOP Rep. Connie Mack on his donors, citing votes that benefited Chevron and a Wall Street backer. "Connie Mack: Deep in debt to the special interests," the ad's narrator concludes. 2) A new Elizabeth Warren ad hits Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., on his votes for the Blunt amendment, against equal pay for equal work, and against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. It's a line of attack she also hit on in their debate this week. 1) The New York Times calls it "the debate that President Obama and Mitt Romney did not have a week ago." The Times:

Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Representative Paul D. Ryan fiercely quarreled at the vice-presidential debate here on Thursday night, with Mr. Biden using the cutting attack lines against the Republican ticket that Mr. Obama did not and Mr. Ryan delivering a spirited case for conservative policies that Mr. Romney had soft-pedaled.

And check out Ron Brownstein's 5 takeaways from the debate. (Number one: "Ryan turned in a composed and confident performance, but Biden delivered more of what his side needed.")
