Fast Fix: Chris Christie, presidential candidate?

Democratic National Committee transfers total $20 million


* Alaska GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller acknowledges in an interview with CNN set to air tonight that he was disciplined for using government computers for political purposes during his time as a borough attorney. Previously, Miller's security guards handcuffed a blogger who was attempting to ask the candidate about the situation after an event at an Anchorage school.

* Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) transferred a total of $1.3 million to eight state Republican parties in the third quarter, and is sending another $250,000 to the Delaware GOP.

* New Democratic polls show Rep. Bobby Bright (D-Ala.) leading Republican Martha Roby by 12 points, while Democrats are in a statistical tie in Arkansas's 1st district. Meanwhile, GOP polls show Reps. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) and Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) in neck-and-neck races.

* Sen. Roland Burris (D) says he's being encouraged to run for mayor of Chicago.

* The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is up with its first ad in Rep. Chet Edwards's (D-Texas) reelection race - a sign that the committee still sees a path to victory for the longtime incumbent in a strongly conservative district.


* Tonight is the LAST Politics and Pints before Election Day. Grab a team or join one when you get there. The trivia/beer-drinking begins at 7 p.m. at Capitol Lounge on 229 Pennsylvania Ave SE.

* In case you can't make it to trivia tonight, there's a big West Virginia Senate debate between Gov. Joe Manchin (D) and Republican John Raese at 8 p.m. It will be broadcast live on C-SPAN, and the webcast will be here.

* New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (the subject of today's Fast Fix!) will be in Washington D.C. on Nov. 30 for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's (R) National Summit on Education Reform.

* Quinnipiac University is set to release its most recent poll of the Ohio governor's race Tuesday morning. The last two Q polls have shown Gov. Ted Strickland (D) down 14 points and then nine points, but he's been closing the gap in other polls. Can he do it again?

* President Obama will appear on a Dec. 8 episode of Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters."
