Today’s installment of campaign-related news items that won’t necessarily generate a post of their own, but may be of interest to political observers:
* Fox News personality and Wall Street lobbyist Scott Brown is talking about running for the Senate again this time, he’s eyeing a race in New Hampshire. Asked by reporters about running in the Granite State, the Massachusetts Republican said he’s “not going to rule out anything right now.”
* In Louisiana, Rep. John Fleming (R) was expected to run for the Senate against incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D), but he bowed out yesterday to make things easier for Rep. Bill Cassidy, who kicked off his campaign on Wednesday.
* In Massachusetts, Rep. Stephen Lynch has been counting on union support to defeat Rep. Ed Markey in the Democratic Senate special election primary, but the plan isn’t working out – the Steelworkers union threw its support to Markey yesterday.
* In Virginia’s gubernatorial race, Democratic super PAC American Bridge launched a new website yesterday, detailing state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s (R) record of rhetorical excesses. It’s not a short list.
* Debbie Dingell (D), the wife of Rep. John Dingell (D), has reportedly taken “concrete steps” toward a U.S. Senate campaign in Michigan next year. Incumbent Sen. Carl Levin (D) is retiring.
* And in South Carolina, Elizabeth Colbert Busch’s Democratic primary opponent, Ben Frasier, threw his support yesterday to former Gov. Mark Sanford (R). Frasier is generally considered a very conservative Dem, who struggled to get just 4% of the vote in his race against Colbert Busch.
