Here’s what cut through the clutter today.
Not everyone agreed with us when we declared a spot from former Massachusetts Senate Minority Leader Richard Tisei (R) as one of the best of the cycle. It was a static camera shot of the beach with almost no political messaging beyond his campaign logo. It reminded us of the annual Corona palm tree Christmas ads.

During our lunch hour, the Roll Call politics team scoured fundraising reports filed with the Federal Election Commission and press releases that landed in our inboxes. Here’s our roundup of the winners and losers, as well as some noteworthy reports on this year-end filing day:
- IA-03: Rep. Tom Latham (R) has quadruple the bank account of his opponent, Rep. Leonard Boswell (D), in his flagship Member-vs.-Member race. (via @shiratoeplitz)
- IN-05: On the morning of Rep. Dan Burton’s (R-Ind.) retirement announcement, former U.S. attorney Susan Brooks reported raising $107,500 and had $325,000 in the bank. Her chief competition for the GOP nod, former Rep. David McIntosh, has not filed his report yet. But Brooks brought in much more than the other Republicans who lined up to challenge Burton. She also has a head start on state Sen. Mike Delph, a former Burton aide, if he jumps into the race before the Feb. 10 filing deadline. (via @shiratoeplitz) Full story
