What else to watch forhttp://abcn.ws/KRmD02

Obama Donor Sat for Bain on Ampad Board – Here’s what the Obama Web video that attacks Romney over Ampad doesn’t mention, according to Jon Karl: A top Obama donor and fundraiser had a much more direct tie to the controversy and actually served on the board of directors at Richardson, Texas-based Ampad, which makes office paper products. http://abcn.ws/KIRQ9w

Florida Republicans Angry Over Raul Castro’s Visa to Talk LGBT Issues – Romney weights in tonight too – “greatly disturbed” that activist was given Visa -  http://abcn.ws/LoyiSN

Nikki Haley Whacked in Effigy – “We’ve been the brunt of her comments now for two years and that’s what the whole thing was.  She’s been whacking at us over the last two years,” Dewitt, who has been president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO for the past 16 years and will retire at the end of June, told Arlette Saenz. “Anyone that knows me knows there was no ill intent at all.  Our folks don’t go to speeches with guns and things like that.  We have very loving people in our unions who will take up money for people or a vet.  We just heard these comments by the governor for over the two years.  They were using a memoir of the last two years I’ve lived under her leadership.” “Kids use piñatas all the time,” she added. http://abcn.ws/Kxw4Sv

Mia Love – Mormon, African American, Republican Woman – Jon Karl’s Power Players report – Mia Love is unlike any  Congressional candidate we ever seen — She’s conservative and the Republican party has deemed her race in Utah’s newly drawn 4th district one of the top ten most important races in the country.  If she wins, Love would be the first black Republican woman ever elected to the House of Representatives. – http://yhoo.it/L3ORaq

What is Taxmadgeddon? – Sunlen Miller Explains – Congress is facing a year-end intersection of the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts, the $1.2 trillion spending cuts due to the sequester, and expiring payroll tax breaks, meaning that if Congress and the president do not act, American taxpayers could be faced with $310 billion in tax increases next year.

When is it going to be solved? Not any time soonhttp://abcn.ws/Kk9wXb

Reagan Blood Feud – The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation’s executive director, John Heubusch, has declared an overseas auction house’s plan to sell off a vial stained with the late president’s blood “a craven act,” and promised his organization “will use every legal means to stop its sale or purchase.” Heubusch also said that he’s been promised that George Washington University hospital administrators will launch a probe into “how something like this could possibly happen.” Sixty-nine days after being sworn in, Reagan was attacked outside a Hilton Hotel in Washington by John Hinckley, Jr., a schizophrenic young man who later said he was trying to impress the actress Jodie Foster. The Secret Service rushed the president to George Washington University Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. Despite significant internal injuries and bleeding, Reagan recovered and was back at work at the White House only weeks later. – http://abcn.ws/KwD2Fd

Gingrich Warns Romney Against ‘Ron Paul Forces‘ – Gingrich,  in an appearance on Sean Hannity Radio Monday, warned that the Republican National Convention could get out of hand if the Romney campaign didn’t come with a clear plan. “I think the biggest danger in the short run is that they not think through how they’re going to handle the convention in Tampa, and how they’re going to handle the Ron Paul forces,” Gingrich said. – http://abcn.ws/JRQWXd
