Daniel Mongiardo, who is running for Senate, bashed Gov. Steve Beshear (D) and his support for Mongiardo's candidacy...and the recording made its way to YouTube, making things pretty awkward; and Democrat Jerry Brown beats all potential GOP opponents in the California gubernatorial race, according to Rasmussen.
