The Good Summarian

Chris Cillizza's Morning Fix recounts Obama's third trip to Nevada to stump for Harry Reid. The president spoke at a fundraiser at a casino, attacking Reid's opponent, Sharron Angle, for calling the $20-billion BP escrow fund a "slush fund."

Ezra Klein's Wonkbook notes the Wall Street Journal's report that a federal appeals court in New Orleans has rejected the Obama administration's push to reinstate the deepwater drilling ban. The administration's argument, a three-judge panel decided, did not "demonstrate a likelihood of irreparable injury if the stay is not granted."

Mike Allen's Playbook highlights a Politico article about the White House's attempt to reverse its anti-business reputation. Business should be thanking Obama, Rahm Emanuel told the paper, for everything from rescuing the auto industry to not nationalizing banks.

ABC's The Note links to the Boston Globe's account of a Massachusetts district court judge who yesterday declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. The ruling will likely be appealed to the First Circuit and possibly the Supreme Court. 

The Daily Beast's Cheat Sheet cites an Associated Press report that, since the federal government announced it was suing Arizona to overturn the state's new immigration law, individuals have donated nearly $500,000 to help defend the law.
