Republicans winning recruiting battle
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 11:25 pm

from Politico

Cook Political Report House analyst David Wasserman notes a telling indicator that the political environment in 2010 is shaping up to be favorable for Republicans: Several Democratic candidates have decided to drop out of tough races, while Democratic members of Congress who rarely face serious challenges are finding themselves with their toughest re-elections in years.

Over the last week, three Democratic candidates touted by national strategists abruptly withdrew from their races: Solano Beach Councilman Dave Roberts (running against California Rep. Brian Bilbray), state Rep. Todd Book (running against Ohio Rep. Jean Schmidt) and Tennessee Commerce and Insurance Commissioner Paula Flowers (in the seat held by retiring Rep. Zach Wamp).

In a neutral political environment, the seats held by Bilbray, Schmidt, and the open Tennessee seat would be enticing targets for Democrats. Democrats aggressively contested the first two seats in both 2006 and 2008, and experienced unexpected success in Southern open seats over the last two elections.

But in 2010, defense is the name of the game for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which is defending several dozens vulnerable freshmen and second-term members, while also protecting veteran members who could find themselves in newfound trouble. It will be a lot more challenging for a first-time candidate running in a tough district to get financial support from the DCCC when the party is worried about defending its own.

The story is different on the Republican side, where recruiting hasn’t been a problem lately. As I note in my story today, some of the most senior Democratic members of Congress have, for the first time in years, serious challengers.

Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.), who didn’t even face a Republican opponent last year, now looks like he could be running against a top-tier challenger in state Sen. Jim Tracy as he vies for a 14th term in the House. Rep. John Spratt (D-S.C.), one of the most influential Democrats in the House, is poised to face a serious challenge from state senator Mick Mulvaney, who has quickly moved up the political ranks in South Carolina.

Two leading Republicans are already jumping in to run for the seat of retiring Rep. Dennis Moore (D-Kan.), while no Democrats have yet stepped forward.

Injured G Carl Nicks, Bucs agree to part ways (The Associated Press)
Carl Nicks has abandoned his bid to get back on the field with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. General manager Jason Licht declined to discuss details of the split, calling Nicks a ''very prideful athlete'' who did everything he could to try to put his injuries behind him and rejoin the team. ''He wanted what we best for the Buccaneers. We were honest with Carl.'' Nicks didn't miss a game in four seasons with the New Orleans Saints, however a left toe injury two years ago and the recurrence of a MRSA infection in his left foot kept him off the field for most of his stay with the Bucs.

NFL roundup: Lynch a no-show at Seahawks' camp (The SportsXchange)
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch officially started his contract holdout Friday by not attending the first day of training camp. General manager John Schneider addressed Lynch's absence on ESPN radio in Seattle but would not say if the team would restructure the final two years on his contract. ---Andre Johnson spent months away from the team, but when it came time for the Houston Texans to report to training camp, the All-Pro wide receiver was back in formation. The 33-year-old wide receiver requested a trade and said he would not report to training camp after skipping offseason workouts and minicamp.

His lawyer disputes if it was McClain who actually is the one who said it.

Fans stoke Dalton debate: 'AJ to A.J.' is future (The SportsXchange)
While debates simmer about if, when and for how much the Cincinnati Bengals should redo quarterback Andy Dalton's contract, now in its fourth year, the fans weighed in when training camp began Thursday. One implored the Bengals to not sign Dalton, while the other read "AJ to A.J. The future is now," referring to rookie quarterback AJ McCarron, whom the team selected in the fifth round, and All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green. Another sign read: "Don't sign Dalton. Early this week, Bengals owner Mike Brown suggested Dalton is worthy of a deal similar to the one San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick signed this year -- a six-year extension worth as much as $126 million, give or take a truckload of cash.

Smith plans to meet soon with Commissioner Goodell (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith expects to sit down with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ''in the near future'' to discuss any potential suspension for his off-field issues. Smith was sentenced last Friday to serve three years of probation and to spend 11 days with a work crew after he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and weapons charges. Smith said he hasn't had time to begin the work yet, and will do so as his time permits. Of the ruling, Smith said he is ''glad how it worked out.'' He didn't want to guess whether he would face a suspension from the league, and said he is unsure whether Ravens running back Ray Rice's two-game penalty Thursday for his offseason arrest for domestic violence provides any indication.

National Football League roundup (Reuters)
(The Sports Xchange) - Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of the regular season by the NFL after his offseason arrest on an assault charge stemming from an incident with his fiancee. He is eligible to be reinstated Sept. 12, meaning Rice will miss key home games against division rivals - the season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and a Week 2 tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. Bernard Pierce is expected to start in Rice's absence. The Atlanta Falcons agreed to terms with Roddy White on a four-year contract extension that runs through the 2018 season and could set the wide receiver up to finish his career with the franchise that drafted him in the first round in 2005.
