Monday Tidbits

NY-State Senate: Sen. Hiram Monserrate has switched sides, again.

CA-03: A third Democrat has gotten into the race against Rep. Dan Lungren. Bill Slaton, director of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, filed to enter the race, joining Elk Grove City Councilor Gary Davis and Bill Durston.

OH-GOV: John Kasich has received an endorsement from Chuck Norris. Ted Strictland must be cowering in fear over this recent development.

CT-04: It appears that 24-year-old Will Gregory, who claims to be a young, fiscally conservative, socially moderate Republican activist, is supposedly running for the GOP nomination to go up against Rep. Jim Himes. State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney also seems likely to get in the race for the GOP and would bring a bit more experience to the table.

FL-Agriculture Commissioner: Rep. Adam Putnam is trailing State Senator Carey Baker 26-17 in that race! Shocking! Go Putnam!

House Education and Labor Committee: It appears that the three-way race for ranking member of the Education and Labor Committee, to be decided on Wednesday, will come down to Conference Vice Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Rep. John Kline (R-MN). Both Kline and McMorris Rodgers have important ties on the 28 member Steering Committee that will choose the next ranking member. Kline is a strong ally of Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), who has five votes on the panel. Either candidate ought to be good.
