Hotline Sort: Springsteen's Rising Senate Stars

7) A University of Connecticut/Hartford Courant poll shows Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy leading GOP opponent Linda McMahon in Connecticut's Senate race, 44 percent to 38 percent -- and the poll shows 17 percent of voters still undecided. The poll, conducted Oct. 11-16, surveyed 574 likely voters and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4 percentage points. 6) New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is starting his own super PAC to support candidates including Independent former Maine Gov. Angus King. 5) Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., apologized Wednesday night for saying earlier in the day that Warren paid actors to appear in ads as asbestos victims. The Boston Globe:

Three of the people in the ads said in statements provided by the Warren campaign that they were neither paid nor ­actors. They said they had lost loved ones to asbestos-related illness and that Brown's accusations were offensive.

4) Things got feisty in the one and only Florida Senate debate last night. The Tampa Bay Times:

Florida's sleepy U.S. Senate race saw a jolt of energy Wednesday night as Connie Mack IV came charging at Democrat Bill Nelson in their first and only televised U.S. Senate debate. Mack accused Nelson of chronic tax-raising, of taking President Barack Obama's side over Florida Medicare beneficiaries, and even using cows to exploit a tax loophole. The 45-year-old Fort Myers congressman looked confident, stayed firmly on message and rarely let facts get in the way of his attacks on the 70-year-old incumbent senator.

3) A new Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee IE spot in Montana hits GOP Rep. Denny Rehberg on voting to raise his own pay and against raising the minimum wage. 2) Obama plans to hold his election night rally indoors, at Chicago's McCormick Place convention center. 1) In this week's "On the Trail" column, Reid Wilson looks at the importance of Virginia in the elections.
