Kyle Trygstad; Kt; Joshua Miller; AbLivingston, Roll Call


Members of Congress from Hawaii and Alaska have a history of bipartisan cooperation, and that was on full display Tuesday when Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) endorsed Rep. Mazie Hirono (D) for Hawaii's open Senate seat.

Seated next to each other during a 90-second Web ad, Young and Hirono discussed their bipartisan work to save native Hawaiian and native Alaskan education programs that were at risk. Hirono said she had to "battle" her own party leadership to get it done.

The spot is lighthearted, with Young attempting a couple of times to offer his opinion of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D- Calif.) before being stopped by Hirono.

"Here's what's important, Hawaii: If you're looking for a United States Senator who doesn't just talk about bipartisanship but actually knows how to work with both Republicans and Democrats to get things done -- Mazie Hirono will be that Senator," Young says in the ad.

Hirono is facing former Rep. Ed Case in the Aug. 11 Democratic primary, the winner of which will take on former Gov. Linda Lingle (R) in the general election. The Democratic nominee will be heavily favored to win the seat of retiring Sen. Daniel Akaka (D) in this Democratic-leaning state, especially with President Barack Obama at the top of the ticket in his native state.

Roll Call rates the race as Leans Democratic.

Assemblywoman Julia Brownley (D) led state Sen. Tony Strickland (R) in the race for the 26th district, according to a poll conducted for the Democrat's campaign and obtained by Roll Call.

In a top pickup opportunity for Democrats, Brownley topped Strickland by 4 points, 48 percent to 44 percent, in the competitive battle for this open, Ventura County-based seat. While Brownley's lead was within the margin of error, Democrats view this poll as a good sign for her in what could be among the closest House races in California.

It also found President Barack Obama ahead of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, 50 percent to 45 percent, and Democrats ahead, 46 percent to 42 percent, in the generic Congressional ballot test.

Brownley was a late entrant to the race after Ventura County Supervisor Steve Bennett dropped out unexpectedly in February. With a Democratic voter registration edge in the district, Democratic groups spent big to ensure Brownley's advancement to the general election to face Strickland, a top GOP recruit. After both turned in strong second-quarter fundraising reports, Strickland held a cash- on-hand edge of $1 million to $322,000 as of June 30.

The poll of 400 likely voters was conducted July 15-19 by Tulchin Research and had a 4.9-point margin of error.

Sen. Scott Brown (R) and Harvard University professor Elizabeth Warren (D) remain locked in a statistical dead heat, according to a nonpartisan poll released Tuesday.

A MassINC Polling Group survey of registered voters found Warren to hold a slight 40 percent to 38 percent advantage over Brown, with 16 percent undecided.

Because this was a poll of registered voters, as opposed to likely voters, the undecided number is probably higher than the actual number of voters who haven't yet made up their mind in the white-hot race that could decide control of the Senate. …
