The Boston Globe: “US Representative Peter King, a New York Republican, plans to stop in Boston on Friday en route to New Hampshire, the nation’s first state to vote in a presidential primary, as he tests the waters for a possible 2016 presidential bid. King, a foreign policy hawk who recently has urged President Obama to intervene in Syria, will meet with former Massachusetts Republican Party chairwoman Jennifer Nassour, according to Nassour.”
So much for telling it like it is… Chris Christie passed on whether the U.S. should act in Syria: "I'm going to leave that to the people who represent us in Congress to make that decision,” he told the Bergen Record.
Meanwhile, Ted Cruz says intervening in Syria would be akin to serving “as Al Qaeda's air force."
NEW YORK: Anthony Weiner lands on the front page of the New York Daily News, but this time for defending his wife from a man wearing a yarmulke, who called Weiner a “scumbag” for being married to an “Arab”: “You’re a real scumbag, Anthony. Married to an Arab.”
VIRGINIA: Washington Post: "Tom Steyer -- a San Francisco-based financier who previously put $400,000 behind an ad attacking" Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli "for his legal efforts against then-University of Virginia climate researcher Michael Mann — is upping the stakes. NextGen Climate Action Committee, a super PAC bankrolled by Steyer, is putting roughly $500,000 into a new ad that makes a broad attack on the ethics of Cuccinelli, who is squaring off against businessman Terry McAuliffe (D).
And McAuliffe released a new TV ad on Wednesday, hitting Cuccinelli over his work with fathers' rights groups.
WYOMING: The Hill: "Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) remains undecided on military intervention in Syria, a more cautious position than his primary challenger Liz Cheney, who said Tuesday she's opposed. The vote could ultimately provide Cheney with an opening among conservatives, as the far-right wing of the GOP seems largely opposed to intervention and, on most issues, Enzi has a strong conservative record."
