Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

Editor's note: Occasionally we will ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation in and outside Washington.

Talk Show Host and Online Editor of Mario Solis-Marich:

– Migrant Workers: DC operatives descending on Colorado to support Sen. Bennet campaign.

– Hired Guns: Meg Whitman’s Spanish language ad consultants beginning to make a dent with Latino voters in California.

– Desk Jocks: The mainstream media parrots that Rory Reid is hurt by his father forgetting that Harry Reid is the leader of the world’s most powerful Senate who is on a trajectory to win reelection.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– Karma in South Carolina: Democrats keep extending unemployment benefits. Alvin Greene saves his and uses them to pay his qualifying fee.

– If Arizona's immigration law is so unpopular, why are Democratic governors spooked by the Obama Administration's lawsuit?

– The IRS is putting Obamacare back on the front burner saying the burdens outweigh the benefits for business and suggesting small businesses could be really hurt.
