News Roundup: Jackson's Parents Visit Him at Mayo Clinic

August 8, 2012
Good morning, everyone. Here are today's headlines.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s parents visited him at the Mayo Clinic where he's being treated for physical and emotional problems, the Chicago Tribune reports.

"It's not the kind of health challenge that you can put on a timetable, but he is responding as he seeks to regain his strength," the Rev. Jesse Jackson said, according to the Trib. "He has the best treatment and he is responding."

A glut of presidential TV ads could bump congressional ads off the air, U.S. News reports.

That's because by law, political candidates pay only the lowest unit rates for advertising. Issue-based advertising, however, which is the category where Super PAC ads fall, do not. Super PACs sometimes pay three times what political candidates do for an ad, and advertisers would much rather run a Super PAC ad than an ad by a down-ticket candidate.
Republican leaders in the House, including Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, are spending August trying to conserve their majority in the lower chamber by visiting districts of first-term lawmakers targeted by Democrats, The Hill reports.
