Clinton in 2013: Bill de Blasio 'a partner who always had my back'​ — Calling de Blasio "a fighter" in the mold of legendary New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, Clinton told a crowd of Democratic donors that she bonded with de Blasio when he managed her 2000 campaign for Senate in New York. Audio from the October 2013 fundraiser in Manhattan, which has never been made public, was provided to CNN by a Democratic source.

Chris Christie plots his comeback — The question has percolated in GOP circles since the new year began, with presidential primary state activists wondering why the New Jersey governor isn't doing a better job keeping in touch and rival GOP campaigns happily pointing to Christie's diminished stature in the polls. Even sympathetic Republicans are scratching their heads.

O'Malley, Webb to address South Carolina Democrats​ — Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb will speak at the South Carolina Democratic Convention on May 3 in Columbia, multiple Democratic sources told CNN. The convention brings together hundreds of elected officials, grassroots activists and delegates - the kind of power brokers whose opinions on the race matter greatly in the early stages of a campaign - to the state capital every spring.

Harry Reid's retirement sets up 2016 battle in Nevada — Not only will the Silver State be the site of a hotly-contested Senate race that's already being rated as the first pure "toss-up" of the cycle by the Cook Political Report, it's also playing host to a key leadoff presidential caucus for both parties and will almost certainly maintain its status as a swing state in the coming presidential race.

Scott Walker backs pathway to citizenship — At a March 13 dinner at the Copper Door Restaurant in Bedford organized by New Hampshire GOP Chairwoman Jennifer Horn, Walker, a likely candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, was asked how he would address the problem of roughly 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States.

Lindsey Graham's 2016 campaign poses problems for GOP — But the South Carolina senator's mere presence in the 2016 race could throw a curveball into the nominating process, forcing his soon-to-be GOP rivals to consider how a Graham candidacy would scramble Republican allegiances in a vital early nominating state. South Carolina votes fourth in the lineup of leadoff states, after Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.

Dems face primary battles of their own — As the party works to retake control of the Senate in 2016, Democrats are looking at a Senate landscape that could feature titanic intraparty clashes starring big personalities who have been waiting years for a shot at the big time.

Santorum robocalls South Carolina Republicans — Santorum's political outfit, Patriot Voices, sent the recorded calls to Republicans in South Carolina on Monday urging them to attend their precinct-level GOP meetings, which convene every March in the state and determine which delegates attend county conventions next month. Those conventions, in turn, elect delegates to the South Carolina GOP convention later this spring.

​Charlie Crist passes on yet another campaign — Charlie Crist, the perma-tanned Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat who has sought nearly every statewide office of note in Florida, will not run for Senate in 2016, he said Monday. "I will not be seeking office in 2016, but I will be working alongside you," Crist wrote in a Facebook post.

Charlie Crist considering Florida Senate bid — Charlie Crist might be back on the Florida ballot once again. The former Florida governor, who lost his Republican-turned-Independent bid for Senate in 2010 and then fell short in his comeback attempt as a Democrat in last year's gubernatorial race, is now considering running for Senate in 2016, an adviser to the governor told CNN on Wednesday.
