Political Circus: GOP 'endorses' Obama 2012 bid

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.

April Fools!

President Obama should be re-elected in 2012, according to a spoof re-election ad paid for by the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

"Today, we celebrate a president that brought Americans together (images then appear of Tea Party protests) ... celebrate the end to our dependence on American energy (image showing gas prices, referring to U.S. dependence on foreign oil).

NRSC mocks 'Captain Kaine'

(CNN) - The National Republican Senatorial Committee wants supporters to 'Stop the Cheer Captain' before he starts. Though Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine hasn't yet made a decision on a U.S. Senate bid for Virginia's open seat, the NRSC has launched a new website to rally voters wishing to stop him in his tracks.

The website, found at cheerleaderinchief.com, depicts a pom-pom wielding Kaine in a cheerleader's uniform backed by less than cheerful chants about the chairman's performance. Described as "dunkin on that stimulus, oh, he fumbled," Kaine is encouraged to "rock that rubberstamp" in a parody that is accompanied by an "album" of photos featuring Kaine with the commander-in-chief and Democratic leaders. "Captain" Kaine is branded as Obama's "number one cheerleader, cheering from the left."

Possible primary battle in bid to take on McCaskill in '12

Washington (CNN) - The National Republican Senatorial Committee says it isn't taking sides in any battle down the road for the party's Senate nomination in Missouri.

The primary winner there will take on freshman Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, who's up for re-election 2012.

A Republican party source confirms to CNN reports that Sen. John Cornyn, the NRSC chairman, spoke before Thanksgiving with former Missouri Treasurer Sarah Steelman about a possible bid for the Senate nomination. The source tells CNN that Steelman called Cornyn, rather than the other way around, and that Cornyn suggested to Steelman that if she thought she could mount a good campaign, then she should run.

NRSC to infuse $3 million into Californian Senate battle

Washington (CNN) - National Republicans are dropping more cash into California's close contest for the Senate.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee says it's injecting $3 million in ad spending into California this week on behalf of GOP Senate nominee Carly Fiorina. They say that brings to nearly $8 million the amount the NRSC has spent on behalf of the former Hewlett-Packard CEO.

The ad buy comes as a Los Angeles Times/USC poll indicated that three-term Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer held a 50 to 42 percent advantage over Fiorina among likely California voters.
