Looks like GOP candidates are lining up to take on EMILY's List alum Cong. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona's 8th congressional district. CQ Politics reported today that Republican state Sen. Jonathan Paton entered the race this weekend, hoping to unseat Giffords this fall.
Already, there are a number of GOP candidates in the race, but CQ calls Paton "by far the most seasoned politician" of Giffords potential opponents.
Florida gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink sure knows how to bring home the bacon for citizens of the Sunshine State.
Sink, currently serving as the state's chief financial officer, announced a savings of $12 million for taxpayers today, based on the work she's done to best use the state's resources.
The primary election for the open seat in IL-10 is only two weeks from today, and things certainly aren't slowing down in the final push to the finish line.
EMILY's List candidate Julie Hamos has been working hard to build the resources she'll need to get her message out to voters, and her efforts are paying off. Last quarter, Julie raised an impressive $535,000 for her campaign, showing exactly how much momentum she has going into the final stretch.
Huge news from Julie Hamos's campaign today! Julie, who's running to fill the open seat in IL-10, landed the endorsement of the Chicago Tribune, a major demonstration of her campaign's strength in the final two weeks before the Feb. 2 primary election. As the Tribune noted, this is the only House race in the state without an incumbent on the ballot, making it a top opportunity for a Democratic takeover.
Just wanted to make sure you saw the great new ad Martha's campaign launched today, reminding us exactly how important it is we help elect Martha to the Senate.
In the ad, President Obama speaks at a campaign rally, telling the crowd about Martha's long record of service for the people of Massachusetts, including her tough stance on Wall Street and her work to protect citizens against predatory lenders.
Watch it here:
The good news just keeps coming in IL-10, where EMILY's List candidate Julie Hamos received the endorsement of the Sierra Club yesterday. Hamos has racked up major endorsements from her fellow state legislators, members of Congress, and unions including AFSCME and the Chicago Teamsters.
NH-02 candidate Ann McLane Kuster is certainly on a roll.
The Concord Monitor highlighted Kuster's campaign momentum recently, pointing out that she's hard at work fundraising and building a strong supporter base.
Kuster has also been making the rounds in the district lately, reaching out to voters and getting out her message. She'll certainly need to build momentum now, as the GOP is sure to make this Granite State seat a top target in November.
