In Brief - July 25th, 2006

Here is today's quick news digest:
  • Curious about who has filed so far to run for office? The Secretary of State has a web page where you can track the candidate filings, sorted by office. (Local races aren't on it, just state and federal).
  • Thomas Friedman, the so called "free trade" expert, has been caught in an embarrassing slipup - he apparently doesn't know what CAFTA stands for.
  • A fight is brewing in the District of Columbia over the costly F/A-22 Raptor program. Follow the link to learn more from Think Progress.
  • Oil companies are soaking rich as the profits pour in. Why are they getting massive government subsidies again? Oh, that's right, because our country is run by a gang of corrupt Republicans with a failed conservative agenda.
  • Joel Connelly has an interesting column tomorrow morning about Peter Goldmark, who's running in the 5th Congressional District against incumbent Republican Cathy McMorris, and Steve Beren, who's running against Jim McDermott in the 7th.
