• An item about the National Republican Congressional Committee's silence in reaction to CD8 special election was inaccurate in "Political Notebook" on page C2 in Sunday's Arizona Daily Star. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Tex., the NRCC Chairman, did issue a statement about the results late Tuesday night, which read in part:
"It is clear that Ron Barber knew that voters in this district would never accept his true positions on President Obama's agenda, which have made a bad economy worse in this state. That explains why he did his best to conceal his support for so much of that agenda. Barber will not have that advantage in November when he will be on the ballot with President Obama, nor will any of his House Democrat colleagues."
• A headline in some editions Sunday on A23, "Saudi succession at issue once again on death of heir, 88," gave the wrong age for Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz. He was 78.
