Here’s what the Loop is reading Wednesday morning:
Past is prologue — Bygones are anything but in the Florida race that pits Republican Rep. Allen West against challenger Patrick Murphy. Each side is bringing up ugly allegations about his opponent’s past.
Eastwood’s Romney sequel — No empty chair this time — actor/director Clint Eastwood has cut a pro-Romney ad. Romneyland can breathe easier, since he’s on script.
Extra baggage — TSA has an image problem — and this one’s got nothing to do with X-rays.
Meanwhile, outside the bubble— While President Obama’s “bayonets” barb during the last debate “made waves among politicians and pundits outside this Navy-heavy region, it seemed to hardly make a ripple in Hampton Roads.”
