Romney: Senator Marco Rubio endorsed Mitt Romney last night on Fox News. Rubio has withheld his endorsement for over 2 months after the Florida primary. Romney probably wishes he would have got this endorsement sooner.
President Bush 41: President George H. W. Bush is set to endorse Romney today. He is clearly the senior statesman of the GOP party and it is another clear sign that the party establishment is ready for this nomination process to end.
Newt: Shelden Adelson, Newt's political sugardaddy, is putting an end to the flow of sugar to Newt's campaign as he sees Newt's campaign at the end of the line and little chance he could be come the vice presidential nominee. Newt's campaign is literally dwindling to a Twitter account and Tiffany's credit line.
Blue Collar: An interesting thing is happening on the way to November... blue collar voters are likely going to have two candidates they don't care for and wish they had other alternatives. President Obama has consistently had problems with blue collar whites, but Mitt Romney does not seem to be catching fire with them either.
Nebraska: There will be a non-binding primary in here in May and Santorum leads Romney in this poll by 39-25 percent. Looking ahead to November Santorum and Romney have double digit leads on the President.
PA-12: Mark Critz began the ad war yesterday. Jason Altmire joins him today by releasing his first ad. While Critz only went slightly negative in the first ad, Altmire goes completely in and tries to contrast the two from the left, specifically Dodd-Frank and the Ryan budget. I am not sure this hurts Altmire's general election chances either. The Ryan budget is probably not the most popular thing in a district that is fairly old.
Fundraising: In case you did not know, the First Quarter fundraising period ends Saturday. If you did not know, you probably don't subscribe to political campaign email lists as you seriously get bombarded with requests at this time of the cycle. Who are you donating to this cycle?
CA-39: Ed Royce appears to have a decently funded challenger in Jay Chen, a small businessman and first generation American. While most consider this seat to be a long shot to be competitive especially with Royce, it will be interesting to see if Chen can keep up his fundraising and maybe find a way to make it somewhat competitive.
New Hampshire: We are closer to a redistricting map in New Hampshire as the State Senate has passed a minimum change map approved by both congressmen. New Hampshire needs to shift around a couple hundred people to be constitutionally compliant.
SuperPAC: The anti-incumbent Super PAC is targeting several incumbents in both parties including Walter Jones, Tim Murphy, Tim Holden, and Jim Moran just to name a few. SuperPAC does not seem to have any focus other than targeting incumbents.
