Key Union Backs Obama; Hillary's Got Cash

Second Thoughts Be Damned [Steven
Greenhouse, The
New York Times
]: "After suffering a setback in New
Hampshire, Senator Barack Obama received some welcome news today
from two powerful labor unions in Nevada.
UNITE HERE, which is by far the most powerful union in Nevada, announced its endorsement of Mr.
Obama this afternoon."

Still Rolling In [John Solomon, Washington
Post
]: "Hillary Clinton's fundraising team raised more money than
Democratic rival Barack Obama in the final three months of 2007, staking claim
to the biggest fundraiser in the presidential race for the second straight
quarter."

Romney Dark Down South [Jonathan
Martin, Politico]:
"Mitt Romney hasn't extended his television presence into next week in South Carolina and Florida,
an aide confirms. Romney has been on TV for months in both states, owning the
airwaves long before his GOP rivals purchased their first spots. But his
multimillion-dollar investment in the two key states that may ultimately decide
the GOP nominee has not paid off as he continues to lag behind rivals there."

A Taste of the Windy City? [Laurie
Kellman, Associated
Press
]: "Barack Obama talked of
introducing some Chicago smackdown to his
politics of hope Wednesday, seeking a rebound after Hillary Rodham Clinton
grasped victory in the New
Hampshire primary."
