The Invisible Primary, 10/9

Tracking the GOP race to 2012

Bobby Jindal will travel to Texas to raise money for his 2011 gubernatorial reelection campaign; Alaska Democrats are following up on an unfulfilled public-records request for Sarah Palin's emails as governor; in 2012 non-news, Levi Johnston will pose for Playgirl; in slightly more substantial news, Tina Fey says she'll probably play Sarah Palin again; Mitt Romney took a swipe at cap-and-trade; Eric Cantor disputed the CBO's assessment that Max Baucus's health reform bill would save the government $81 billion over 10 years; he penned an op-ed for Politico on Afghanistan; and Tim Pawlenty may have been the Iowa GOP's second choice for the event he'll headline in November.
