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:

* As if Anthony Weiner’s (D) mayoral bid in New York City wasn’t in enough trouble, over the weekend, his campaign manager quit. That’s not a good sign.

* Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R) primary rival in Kentucky, Matt Bevin, picked up a helpful endorsement last night when the Madison Project, a conservative fundraising group headed by former Rep. Jim Ryun (R-Kan.), announced its support for Bevin’s campaign.

* In a bit of a surprise, former Arkansas Lt. Gov. Bill Halter (D) ended his gubernatorial campaign this morning.

* Liz Cheney’s U.S. Senate bid in Wyoming is off to a rough start if recent polling is any indication, and it doesn’t help that Senate Republicans are rallying to support the long-time incumbent, Sen. Mike Enzi (R).

* In Virginia, a poll conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and commissioned by NARAL Pro-Choice America found Ken Cuccinelli’s “strident opposition to abortion will help drive female voters who might otherwise stay home to the polls in the off-year Virginia governor’s race.”

* And in San Diego, add Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) name to the list of prominent Democrats who want San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D) to quit.
