The 2010 midterms are just around the corner (sort of). Here's what's happening:

The Countrywide loans story was revived today in The Wall Street Journal, which Sen. Chris Dodd's opponent, former Rep. Rob Simmons (R), promptly used in a fundraising email; Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is asking for more information on Countrywide's loans; unnamed sources tell the Denver Post that the White House offered a job to Andrew Romanoff, the primary opponent of Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), which Romanoff allegedly turned down before entering the race (the White House denies an offer); and GOP recruit John Guedry has decided not to run against Rep. Dina Titus (D) in Nevada's third district.
