Question of the Day
New TV ads target five Democratic senators
Crossroads GPS is running television ads targeting five Democratic senators up for re-election in 2012. They are Bill Nelson of Florida, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Ben Nelson of Nebraska.
The group also is running ads on national cable TV outlets and in presidential battleground states including Colorado, Iowa, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada and Virginia criticizing President Obama. It’s also targeting a handful of House districts.
The ads will begin running Friday. Crossroads is spending about $7 million on the effort.
Crossroads and an affiliated organization, American Crossroads, spent $38.6 million in 2010 against Democrats.
Obama expands campaign against bad regulations
The Obama administration is expanding its effort to rid the government of burdensome or redundant regulations.
President Obama issued an executive order Monday calling on independent agencies to make a plan for reviewing regulations that could be streamlined, expanded or repealed. The goals are to save money, allow agencies to operate more efficiently and ease burdens on business.
Mr. Obama ordered executive agencies — those run by a Cabinet secretary — to do the same in January.
The order is not binding, though the administration says it expects independent agencies to comply. The Securities and Exchange Commission and the National Transportation Safety Board are among the agencies covered by the order.
