2010: Cornyn's pitch

Roll Call curtain raises NRSC Chairman John Cornyn's pitch to some potential 2010 Senate candidates, and why they shouldn't run for U.S. House: "In describing a conversation with Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.), whom Cornyn is trying to lure to run for what will be an open seat in 2010, the NRSC chairman said: 'Being in the House right now -- and as a Republican -- is not a lot of fun. So I think it's more fun, and you can have a lot of impact being in the Senate right now, so I hope he'll come join us.'" 
 
OHIO: Rob Portman "was at NRSC headquarters [last] week presumably to discuss his Senate bid in Ohio. Portman announced last week that he was running to replace Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio), who announced his retirement on Jan. 12."
