Marco Rubio, Florida's Republican candidate for the US Senate, has just released a new campaign ad that's not only a pitch for votes, it's a great summary of what these mid-term elections are really about. The son of Cuban exiles, Mr. Rubio offers his own insight on America's past and current challenges and warns, "If we stay on this road Washington has us on right now, we will risk the essence of what makes us exceptional."

There's a disappointing news/great news situation in West Virginia today. Two endorsements were made in the campaign for the US Senate seat formerly held by the late Senator Robert Byrd (D-West Virginia) and each of the two major candidates got one.
