The latest example, reported now for the very first time (as are we can tell), shows CNBC’s Rebecca Quick — the co-host of the channel’s popular show Squawk Box and a co-moderator with John Harwood at a 2015 Republican primary debate — promising to support Sylvia Mathews Burwell, who had just been named the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services....

Apparently the GOP is floating the name of Bowles, a two-time Democratic Senate candidate and Charlotte investment banker, as a way to send a message to...

    <p>Erskine Bowles campaigns for the U.S. Senate in North Carolina as a populist, a man with a "personal discomfort with politics." Even as he squares off against Elizabeth Dole this fall, Mr. Bowles maintains he "is not a politician," and only runs for office due to a philanthropic impulse he realized after September 11. The record, however, reveals Bill Clinton's former chief of staff as an entrenched and experienced politician with a penchant for Clintonite ethics.</p>
