Today's installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.

* As promised, the Arizona Republican Party formally censured three of their own over the weekend, approving censure resolutions against Cindy McCain, former Sen. Jeff Flake (R), and current Gov. Doug Ducey (R).

* Despite earning a reputation for brazen dishonesty, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced this morning she's launching a Republican gubernatorial campaign in Arkansas. Incumbent Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) is term-limited and can't seek a third term in 2022.

* Though House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) recently voiced support for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the top House GOP leader said yesterday he has "concerns" about the Wyoming congresswoman's recent impeachment vote.

* Despite his recent antics, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) conceded over the weekend that Joe Biden's presidency is legitimate, as was the 2020 presidential election.

* Despite her recent criticisms of what's become of her party, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) reiterated on Friday that she has "absolutely no desire to move over to the Democratic side of the aisle. She added, "I can't be somebody that I'm not."

* Ahead of 2024, should Iowa remain the first presidential nominating state? Democratic officials have started having the conversation.

* And former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo started counting down the days until the 2024 presidential election on Jan. 21 -- literally President Biden's first full day in office.
