Friday Morning Rundown

Lots of interesting tidbits:

  • Swing State Project has up part three of its Senate Recruitment Threads, now focusing on NC, NE, NH, NM, and OK. Head over and share your thoughts.

  • Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post's The Fix blog takes an updated look at 2008 Senate races. Highlights include: Colorado Republican Wayne Allard leaning toward retirement; Mississippi Republican Thad Cochran may have to make a decision sooner than his next-September timeframe; and Montana Republican U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg's non-denial about a challenge to incumbent Democrat Max Baucus.

  • Virginia: Republican John Warner gives his strongest indications yet that he is planning on running for re-election, so offer the Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Virginian-Pilot.

  • New Hampshire: The Union Leader has a glimpse at Democrats not named Jeanne Shaheen considering a 2008 Senate challenge to John Sununu, namely state senator David Gottesman and Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand.

  • Oregon: The Statesman Journal has more letters to the editor bashing Gordon Smith's obvious political posturing, here and here.
