And they reported that the senator raised more than $2.8 million the past three months, bringing to more than $10 million she's brought in this cycle.

Washington (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden reflected on his career in politics and what he sees as the fight against cynicism as the keynote speaker at an award ceremony for political reporting in Washington Monday.
The Toner Prize celebration dinner is held in honor of the late Robin Toner, the first woman to be named national political correspondent for The New York Times, who died in 2008.
"When talking to Robin, I always knew it wasn't a cynical exercise for her. It wasn't score-keeping. She knew the outcome of the election affected real people's lives and that's why she held us accountable," Biden said of Toner, who covered five presidential elections and many other federal races during her reporting career.
(CNN) - The New Hampshire Republican Party is going up with a new web video that links Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen to President Barack Obama and to the federal health care law.
The Monday release of the video comes on the same day that Shaheen's campaign went up with a radio ad critical of former Sen. Scott Brown of neighboring Massachusetts, who's now taken a key step towards challenging Shaheen.
