News Roundup: Saving Tierney

July 30, 2012
Monday morning blues? Well, the Alley will help ease your way into the day with some headlines. Here's what we're reading:

Rep. John Tierney is scrambling to save his political life as he faces a tough reelection fight after his wife and brother-in-law were embroiled in a gambling scandal that put them both in jail. So Democratic lawmakers, such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, are doing what they can (read: raising cash) to prevent the vulnerable seat from slipping to the Republicans, reports Politico.

Political candidates need not raise money in the 50 states alone, as overseas fundraising has become a staple of election season. The Obama campaign has raised $600,000 among Americans abroad and the Romney campaign raised $325,000 (although this doesn't include amounts Romney is raising during his current overseas trip). "The sums are just a fraction of the more than $300 million Obama has raised overall and the $155 million raised by Romney, but every penny counts in a race that is neck and neck, as recent polls have shown," the Associated Press reports.

And conservative advocacy group American Energy Alliance is putting pressure on House Republicans to abandon renewable energy subsidies in the farm bill, reports The Hill. The group is pumping $80,000 worth of radio ads into the airwaves, urging listeners to contact three lawmakers in particular: Kristi Noem (S.D.), Steve King (Iowa) and Frank Lucas (Okla.).
