Kausfiles demands Comcast drop its merger plans: An old Ralph Nader trick, I’m told, was that when he found out the government was about to do something he immediately called a press conference and demanded that they do it. Presente.org, the indeterminately vaporous Latino lobbying organization, seems to be borrowing a related page from the same book, shooting out an email today (after this press report):

PRESENTE.ORG: COMCAST MERGER COLLAPSE WOULD BE HUGE WIN FOR LATINOS

But, as Michael Barone and Byron York have pointed out, Republican primary voters are paying unusual attention to the race right now. How else would Walker rise to the top tier after a B+ speech at an early event in Iowa? …

(“Even if Tea Partiers aren’t willing to get on board, Zwick said the GOP money men have learned their lesson: ‘I really believe that the donor community… now finally recognizes, and I see them only wanting to get behind a candidate that is willing to take leadership on his issue.'” — McKay Coppins, Buzzfeed.)
