What we’re mulling on Monday …

  • #MIsen: Michigan’s Democratic primary waters are clear now — so when will Rep. Gary Peters jump into the Senate race? Debbie Dingell announced in a Saturday Facebook post that she will not seek the Democratic nomination to replace retiring Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich. No word yet from Peters on an announcement.
  • #SC01: Not everyone has abandoned former Gov. Mark Sanford’s special election bid. National Right to Life PAC spent almost $6,000 on mailers for Sanford, according to online records with the Federal Election Commission.
  • #HIsen: Your move, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, D-Hawaii. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will back Sen. Brian Schatz in the Democratic primary, via the Honolulu Star Advertiser.

What you might have missed “At the Races” on Monday….

  • #AKsen: Republican Joe Miller suggests to Kyle Trygstad that the National Republican Senatorial Committee isn’t too psyched about his comeback campaign for Senate in 2014. You think?
  • #SC01: Sanford Does Not Remember the Alamo. At least not correctly.
  • #MAsen: Democratic Reps. Edward J. Markey and Stephen F. Lynch returned to the campaign trail after they suspended their campaigns following the Boston Marathon bombings.
  • House: National Republican Congressional Committee announced its vulnerable incumbents for the Patriot Program.
  • Senate: The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised almost $7 million more than Republicans in the first quarter of this year.
