  • The Washington Post reports that both the Democrat and Republican national committees spend about two-thirds of the funds they receive on fancy meals, hotels, travel and efforts to raise more money.
  • The CEO of Moody's Investors Service, Raymond McDaniel, will face the Senate on Friday, reports McClatchy. The Senate is expected to grill him about why bad bonds received good ratings.
