Romney’s Obama-Centric Message

Mitt Romney’s currently enjoying a comfortable lead in many state polls and the $25-$30 million in donations he’s said to have brought in this quarter will likely dwarf his opponents’ hauls.

Puppies! Vote for me! Puppies!

Democratic Pennsylvania Senate hopeful Rep. Joe Sestak last week came out with this commercial. Puppies! Cute!
