EARLIER ON THE FIX:
WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED:
* Elizabeth Warren’s campaign suggests Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is being sexist by raising questions about the Harvard Law Professor’s listing as a “Native American” in past professional directories. Warren campaign manager Mindy Myers said in a statement that if Brown has questions, “he ought to ask them directly instead of hiding behind the nasty insinuations of his campaign” and added, “Once again, the qualifications and ability of a woman are being called into question by Scott Brown who did the same thing with the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan. It’s outrageous.”
* Obama’s half-sister Auma Obama, who works at CARE International in Kenya, is out with a memoir. In “And Then Life Happens,” she talks about meeting Barack for the first time in the 1980s and dealing with reporters during the 2008 campaign; here’s an excerpt.
* Mitt Romney is starting to push back on President Obama’s contention that the former Massachusetts governor would not have killed Osama bin Laden. “Of course” he would have made the same call, Romney told reporters today. “Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order.” Obama shot back in a press conference. “I assume that people meant what they said when they said it,” he said, referencing Romney’s 2007 opposition to strikes in Pakistan.
* Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker‘s recall campaign headquarters are in a secret location; mail goes to a P.O. Box in Middleton. Attempts by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel to find the governor’s campaign were unsuccessful.
