Warnings from home as debt crisis continues – Dem. Senate candidates take different fund raising routes – Sales tax holiday passes House

DEBT: I’m sure Mayor Menino’s thoughts on the debt crisis are important (AP), and John Kerry’s comments are vital (Republican), but Peter Blute has something to say, so listen to him first. (Sun Chron.)

2012: Setti Warren may not have raised much money, but it’s from the right people. Bob Massie goes the opposite route (WL). Oh, and the other Warren is still fueling the rumor mill (TP).
