Breaking News from The Hill

House leaders picking their primary favorites

Burton highlighted in The Hill today.

A Page One story in today's edition of The Hill talks about the scratch Leadership and Members are giving to their colleagues.

The Hill's Aaron Blake reports that "Reps. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.), Leonard Boswell (D-Iowa) and Dan Burton (R-Ind.) have banked tens of thousands from leaders and members."

Burton's campaign has the most support from the Leadership and other Members of any Member of Congress with a Primary Election challenge.

Insiders see this as a sign that Burton has both the support and confidence of his fellow Members, local politicos and elected officials. Minority Leader John Boehner headlined a very successful fundraiser for Burton in Indianapolis this summer. His campaign website lists numerous endorsements and testimonials from elected officials, party officials and constituents.

"In the end," said one house staffer, "this is just another sign that Burton is going to win this thing in a walk. The people that watch the polling and the fundraising numbers have all written this one off." he said, concluding "You never take anything for granted, but any serious read of this race will tell you it's solid Burton."
