Inside Politics: Intel chairman challenges account of embassy attack
The numbers are nearly identical in the state’s Senate race, where Ms. Baldwin has support from 52 percent of likely voters compared with 40 percent for former Gov. Tommy Thompson, the GOP candidate.
Numerous polls indicate that Democratic support in Wisconsin has surged since early August, when Mr. Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his running mate helped Republicans draw even in the presidential race and gave them hope of winning the state for the first time since 1984.
Ryan says Obama’s plan puts military in jeopardy
LIMA — Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says President Obama’s attempt to cut military spending is putting Americans at risk overseas.
Mr. Ryan on Monday kicked off three days of campaigning in battleground Ohio by the GOP presidential ticket. Mr. Ryan campaigned in the town of Lima that’s home to a tank plant on the government chopping block.
The Wisconsin congressman says gutting the military will embolden enemies abroad. But Mr. Ryan didn’t tell his audience that he voted for the defense cuts he’s now criticizing on the campaign trail.
Mr. Ryan and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will campaign together in Ohio on Tuesday and Wednesday. Mr. Obama also will campaign in the state Wednesday.
Recent polls in Ohio show the incumbent Democrat with a slim lead over his Republican rival.
Lawmaker touts ‘Snooki’ legislation to protect towns
ATLANTIC CITY — A New Jersey lawmaker wants towns to have a say in the filming of reality TV shows within their boundaries before a Situation develops.
Ocean County Republican Assemblyman Ronald Dancer on Monday introduced legislation for a Snookiville Law. The law would let towns impose conditions including requiring TV crews to pay for additional police officers to assure public safety during filming.
Dancer named the bill after “Jersey Shore” cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, whose show with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and others recently ended its three-year run in Seaside Heights.
The MTV show’s cast members were involved in scuffles and drunken public displays. Police officers routinely were assigned to areas where filming occurred.
