Vice President Joseph Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan Debate in Kentucky(Reuters)

• A debate in California turned ugly last night between two Jewish Democratic congressmen who are pitted against each other because of redistricting. At one point, Congressman Brad Sherman challenged Congressman Howard Berman to a fight. [JTA]

• The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the European Union on Thursday in Oslo. It was the first organization to win the award since 1999. And they could probably use the cash. [BBC]
