(Updated 4:40 p.m. ET with O'Donnell campaign response)
(CNN) - Meghan McCain is known for speaking her mind, and her views on Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell proved no exception Sunday.
"I just know, in my group of friends, it turns people off because she's seen as a nut job," McCain said on ABC's "This Week" program. "It scares me for a lot of reasons."
(CNN) - Facing the certainty of fewer Democrats in Congress, President Barack Obama will focus on strengthening the economy and trying to ensure its future stability, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday.
Speaking on the NBC program "Meet the Press," Gibbs said Obama also will continue pushing for education reform and making sure that health care and Wall Street reforms are properly implemented.
(CNN) - Even though Senior White House Adviser David Axelrod contends that Republicans will win seats in the November elections, he still wasn't willing to budge Sunday on bipartisanship or extending all of the Bush-era tax cuts.
"It's up to us to extend our hand (to Republicans) as we have before," Axelrod told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley on "State of the Union." "It's up to them to decide whether they're going to take it or whether they're going to do what they've done for the last 2 years."
Editor's Note: In the final 100 days before Election Day, CNN has been profiling one race at random each day from among the nation's top 100 House races, which we've dubbed "The CNN 100." Read the full list here. Today's featured district is:
NY 24: Rep. Michael Arcuri is defending his seat.
Primary: September 14, 2010 Location: Central New York
Days until the election: 16
This one is a fight in the trenches. Two-term Democratic Rep. Michael Arcuri is fighting to hold his seat for a third term in a do-over race against Republican Richard Hanna. Hanna, whose 48 percent of the vote in 2008 came too close for comfort to Arcuri, now has the advantages of name-recognition in the district, a built-in infrastructure, and of course the terrible environment for incumbents.
