Governor Deval Patrick has said he will sign it and quickly appoint a person to fill the vacant U.S. Senate seat. The NY Times has more here.


Republicans asked Treasury Secretary to end bail out bill at the end of the fiscal year - the Troubled Assets Relief program (TARP) is funded through September 30 which is the end of the federal fiscal year. It was passed at the end of the George W. Bush administration at the height of the financial crisis. has more here.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee enters September with 10.74 million and the Republican committee reported 4 million. has more here.


Fox News gets into the spreading of untruths and other networks respond - seems not only some Republican officials can spread untruths.
