OVERNIGHT CAMPAIGN: Reigning Supreme

Mitt Romney used the verdict to blast President Obama for not seeking more comprehensive immigration reform as president, but did not offer a clear opinion on the substance of the ruling.

Romney said later in the day that he "would have preferred to see the Supreme Court give more latitude to the states, not less.”

Obama, meanwhile, praised the court for overturning most of the law but expressed concern about implementation of the remaining provision.

And that leaves Thursday as D-Day for the court to announce its decision on the healthcare law.


TOMORROW’S AGENDA TODAY: President Obama speaks at a campaign fundraiser at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel in Atlanta. He’ll then address a fundraiser at the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami.

Vice President Biden begins a two-day campaign swing in Eastern Iowa. On his first day, he meets with United Auto Workers in Waterloo.

Mitt Romney will be campaigning in Virginia, holding an event in Salem.

First lady Michelle Obama will be in Chicago for an event with military families, followed by a campaign fundraiser.


VOTERS ARE VOTING:

New York and Utah hold their congressional primaries on Tuesday.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) is favored to win his contest.

Meanwhile, Rep. Charles Rangel (R-N.Y.) faces one of the toughest primaries of his political career. Also worth keeping an eye on is the race to replace retiring Rep. Ed Towns (D-N.Y.). It’s a contest between Charles Barron (D), who calls Robert Mugabe and Moammar Gadhafi his “heroes,” and Dem Party favorite Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries.

Polls close in Utah at 10 p.m. ET and in New York at 9 p.m. ET. 


TWEET OF THE DAY: “When is Romney going to look like a challenger? Seems to play everything safe, make no news except burn off Hispanics.” — News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch.


QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Justice [Anthony] Kennedy has our second and final decision of the day, in Arizona v. United States.” — Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, noting the healthcare decision would not be announced Monday. 


POLL POSITION:

President Obama is leading Mitt Romney by more than 40 percent among Hispanics, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll.

A new poll finds that more than half of voters express doubts that either Obama or Romney can boost the economy after the election, a troubling sign for both campaigns, which have made economic policy a centerpiece of their messaging.

Obama has a solid lead over Romney in the critical swing state of New Hampshire, according to a poll from American Research Group, 51 percent to 43 percent. Obama was helped by his 24-point lead with women. 


AD WATCH:

President Obama's reelection team unveiled a new video bashing Mitt Romney for a commercial that mocks the president's comment — later clarified — that the private sector economy was "doing fine."


BATTLE FOR THE HOUSE:

Florida: Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) over the weekend said the United States should cut off foreign aid to Egypt and denounce the results of the country’s presidential election.

Michigan: Freshman Rep. Dan Benishek (R-Mich.) leads former state Rep. Gary McDowell (D) by 2 percentage points, and only 40 percent of voters say they would support him, according to a new poll conducted for the House Majority PAC, a Democratic super-PAC.

Utah: Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah) is above 50 percent and leads his opponent by 15 percentage points, according to a new poll from the Deseret News — good news for him, considering how Republican the district is and how much of it is new to the longtime congressman.


SENATE SHOWDOWN:

Missouri: Businessman John Brunner (R) holds a big lead over his primary opponents, according to a new internal poll released by his campaign. Brunner leads with 40 percent of the vote to 20 each for Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) and former Missouri state Treasurer Sarah Steelman (R). While internal polls should always be viewed with a bit of skepticism, this is a good sign for Brunner's campaign in a muddled race where the three candidates are close on policy views.

Montana: Both Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) and Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) will skip their parties’ upcoming national conventions, their campaigns told The Hill on Monday, in order to concentrate on their Senate races.

Utah: Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) holds a commanding lead heading into Tuesday's primary election, according to a poll from The Deseret News. Hatch leads former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist (R) by 60 to 32 percent.


IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:

President Obama, during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, mocked Mitt Romney's campaign for pointing to differences between "outsourcing" and "offshoring" American jobs. “Gov. Romney’s commitment to outsourcing is not just part of his record, it’s part of an overwhelming economic vision,” he charged. “Unlike Gov. Romney, I want to close the outsourcing loophole in our tax code.”

Obama made an ice cream run to a local shop in New Hampshire on Monday between campaign stops, recording a birthday greeting and offering to treat patrons to sweet treats.

Obama and first lady Michelle Obama offer tips for planning a first date in a new video released over the weekend by his reelection campaign.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) got personal on ABC's "The View" Monday. The young Florida senator, who's been mentioned as a possible Romney vice presidential pick, said he often worries he's not able to successfully balance his professional life and personal life.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia ripped Obama’s new deportation directive when he offered his minority opinion on the Arizona immigration ruling.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is hosting a fundraiser Monday in the nation's capitol to support ShePAC, an outside political organization working to elect conservative women to federal office.

Jennifer Psaki, a longtime press aide to Obama who left the White House last year for the private sector, will rejoin the Obama campaign as its traveling press secretary.
