Susana Martinez leads N.M. governors race


* The Alaska Libertarian Party will not allow Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) to run on its ticket because her values don't reflect the values of the party, according to party chairman Scott Kohlhaas.

* The Tea Party Express, which has spent more than $500,000 backing attorney Joe Miller's (R) Alaska Senate bid, says it expects to be on the air on behalf of Delaware Senate hopeful Christine O'Donnell (R) by the end of the week.

* One day after he was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader, Senate hopeful and former gubernatorial nominee Ovide Lamontagne (R) announced that he is going up with a one-week cable TV ad buy.

* Retired Gen. Wes Clark (D) took a shot at Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) while stumping for Illinois Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias (D), saying that Kirk's exaggerations of his military record "are a factor in this race."

* Republican Governors Association chairman Haley Barbour (Miss.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) will campaign for businessman Rick Scott's (R) Florida gubernatorial bid tomorrow. Meanwhile, state Attorney General Bill McCollum (R) said he's not endorsing in the race.


* Tomorrow is the first primary-free Tuesday since July 6!

* Meanwhile, vote-counting in Alaska begins tomorrow. Will the 20,000 uncounted ballots help Murkowski overcome Miler's 1,668-vote lead?

* A new Quinnipiac poll out tomorrow morning will examine New York state voters' opinions on the construction of an Islamic center near ground zero - likely to drive the news cycle on a day when the administration would prefer to focus on Iraq.

* Vice President Joe Biden is headed to New Mexico next month to raise money for Lt. Gov. Diane Denish (D).

* Food for thought: Former Rep. Harold Ford's (D-Tenn.) future political run isn't likely to happen in Tennessee, but rather New York.
