THE SENATE MAJORITY DIES FROM THE HEAD OF THE TICKET:

Webb's Weak Year End Haul (Julie Sobel, February 1, 2011, Hotline)

Sen. Jim Webb's (D-Va.) year end fundraising numbers do not bode well for Democrats hoping he will seek a second term in 2012.

Webb raised just more than $12,000 from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, finishing the year with just $440,000 in his bank account.


Denny Rehberg to Announce Senate Bid Saturday (Kyle Trygstad, 1/31/11, Roll Call)
Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) will announce Saturday he is challenging Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.).

“It’s happening Saturday,” said a knowledgeable Montana GOP political operative. “He’s running. There is a lot of support and enthusiasm back home, and Denny knows he can win.”

This should be the easiest cycle for the GOP to recruit in at least half a century.
