Tuesday’s Campaign Round-Up, 4.22.14

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:
 
* It’s Election Day in Florida, where voters in former Rep. Trey Radel’s (R) district will choose the party nominees to run in a June 24 general election. Republicans are heavily favored to hold on to the seat, though today’s primary has no clear frontrunner.
 
* And speaking of Florida, the Democratic Governors Association is getting invested in Charlie Crist’s gubernatorial campaign, cutting the former Republican a check this week for $500,000. Crist’s chief fundraiser said it’s “probably the first installment from the DGA.”
 
* In Kentucky, it’s probably not a good sign for Matt Bevin’s Republican Senate campaign that his communications director and two field coordinators have all left his team recently.
 
* Sen. Mark Udall (D) launched a re-election ad in Colorado today, continuing to hammer Rep. Cory Gardner (R) over his support for a “personhood” measure and opposition to several forms of birth control.
 
* As recently as 2012, Greg Brannon, a prominent Republican Senate candidate in North Carolina, fielded a question about whether the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. “Things like this have to be asked,” he replied.
 
* In a new ad in Michigan, Senate hopeful Terri Lynn Land (R) dismisses accusations about supporting an anti-woman agenda by reminding voters that she’s a woman.
 
* And in March, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee narrowly outraised its Republican counterparts, $10.3 million to $9.9 million.
