JUNEAU, Alaska - Several major pieces of legislation remained in play as lawmakers aimed to finish their work on time.
LOGAN TOWNSHIP, New Jersey - Two of the Democrats running for Congress in New Jersey's 1st District say they're in the race largely because they feared no one else would take on the third, a state senator and brother of a non-elected powerbroker.
RALEIGH, North Carolina - Kay Hagan's self-identification as a middle-of-the-road U.S. senator who fights for the middle class, among other groups, and responds effectively to constituent requests may sound trite coming from any politician's mouth seeking re-election.
ATLANTA - Georgians have just a few days left to register if they want to vote in next month's primary election.

SPRINGFIELD, Illinois - The Illinois Democratic Party is planning to hold an organizational meeting for the state central committee.
HELENA, Montana - Max Baucus' decision not to seek re-election to the Senate after 35 years opened the door for Republicans to pick up one of the six Democratic seats they need to recapture control of the Senate. But his early resignation after being named U.S. ambassador to China may have bolstered Democratic prospects of retaining the seat they've held for a century, thanks to the value of incumbency.
PIERRE, South Dakota - South Dakota voters who live out of the state, will be travelling on Election Day or simply want to cast their vote early can do so with absentee ballots beginning Friday.

DES MOINES, Iowa - A catchy political ad and a gotcha video have raised Republican hopes of capturing a U.S. Senate seat in Iowa, enhancing the party's chances of regaining control of the chamber.
HELENA, Montana - Most of the money funneling into the Republican primary for Montana's open U.S. House seat is going to one candidate, leaving the others to look for ways to stand out and get their message heard in a crowded field.
WASHINGTON - Some of the challengers in California's most competitive congressional races are showing strong fundraising for the first three months of the year, reinforcing how much an independent redistricting process has changed the political landscape and turned a handful of congressional seats into battlegrounds between the two parties.
ATLANTA - State officials say thousands of voters have used Georgia's new Web-based programs to register ahead of the May 20 primary.
MONTGOMERY, Alabama - Rep. Paul DeMarco has the fundraising lead in the crowded GOP primary for Alabama's 6th Congressional District seat.
HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania - A Republican Party-backed effort to disqualify the lone primary challenger to Gov. Tom Corbett is headed to the state Supreme Court.
PORTLAND, Oregon - Monica Wehby (WEHB'-ee) is launching the first television ads in the Republican primary campaign for U.S. Senate.
JACKSON, Mississippi - U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi has raised more than three times as much campaign cash this year as Chris McDaniel, his challenger in the June 3 Republican primary.

LAS VEGAS - The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values.
BOULDER, Colorado - Republican U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner won't have a primary before taking on Democratic Sen. Mark Udall.
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - On the campus of Samford University, seven Republican hopefuls took the stage at a candidate forum to explain why voters should send them to the U.S. Congress.
