Mitt clinches it – RomneyCare turns 6 – Brazilian Prez brings diplomacy, lone protest – Where are the Republicans running for Senate?

MITT NEEDS YOU: Now that Mitt Romney has clinched the GOP presidential nomination, the Massachusetts Democrats are throwing him a party on RomneyCare’s birthday. Since they’re being so nice to Mitt, maybe they can help him convince all the people that hate him to vote for him.

BRAZIL: In case you missed it, the Brazilian president was here yesterday. Everyone sat in the Reading Room, ate arugula and lemon curd tart and said nice things about each other. Things weren’t so cheery for one local woman, though, as John Monahan reports for the T&G.

FOUR FOREVER: Bernstein is looking high and low for Republicans running for state Senate.
