Today's installment of campaign-related news items that won't necessarily generate a post of their own, but may be of interest to political observers:
* On CBS's "Face the Nation" yesterday, Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) said he's "absolutely considering" a gubernatorial campaign next year, "as well as giving other options some consideration." Incumbent Gov. Chris Christie (R) will seek a second term in 2013, but Sen. Frank Lautenberg's (D) term is up in 2014. Lautenberg is 88 and has not yet announced his plans.
* With Rep. Charles Boustany (R) prevailing in Louisiana over the weekend, there are no remaining congressional races from the 2012 cycle. When the 113th Congress gets underway in January, there will be 234 House Republicans and 201 House Democrats.
* As expected, President Obama has asked Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) to stay on as chair of the Democratic National Committee for another term.
* Speaking of Democratic committee leadership, Senate Democrats have chosen Sen. Michael Bennet (D) of Colorado as the next chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Guy Cecil, his former chief of staff, will be the DSCC's executive director.
* On a related note, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin was elected to lead the Democratic Governors Association. He faced no real opposition for the post.
* And in Tennessee, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R) hopes to scare away potential primary challengers and is rolling out support last week from "a wide-ranging roster of top Tennessee Republicans." There were rumors that former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen might run against Alexander, but asked if he'd run, Bredesen told local reporters, "I don't think so."
