Daily News Round Up for May 28, 2009

Hartford Courant (Hartford, CT)
Democratic Senator Chris Dodd (CT) continues to trail his Republican challenger and suffer from unfavorable job approval ratings.

Philadelphia Inquirer (Philadelphia, PA)
Rep. Joe Sestak (D., Pa.) has begun telling close supporters that he intends to run against newly Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter in the 2010 primary, setting the stage for a battle that party leaders hoped to avoid.
Politico (Washington, DC)
Continuing on the Sestak news, new polling shows that Senator Specter is still having problems convincing Pennsylvanians to re-elect him after his Party switch.
CQ Politics (Washington, DC)
The Alaska Democrat who almost toppled Rep. Don Young last year is gearing up for another statewide race — against Gov. Sarah Palin, if she chooses to run for re-election.

Boston Globe (Boston, MA)
Tainted from the day he was appointed, Senator Roland Burris again finds himself denying any role in a pay-to-play scheme as newly revealed wiretaps show him begging for his Senate seat and offering to donate to the campaign of Illinois’s ousted governor, Rod Blagojevich.

    It is unfortunate that Burris’ name will always be in some way correlated with Blagojevich. Whether he does an outstanding job, most Americans will think of that controversy when they hear his name.
