Analyzing the Angle-Reid debate


* The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised more than $27 million in the third fundraising quarter, including $15.5 million raised in September. The committee has $25.6 million cash on hand. The National Republican Senatorial Committee took in $8.3 million in September and has $19.2 million cash on hand.

* Former Nevada Assemblywoman Sharron Angle (R) raised over $3 million in the first 13 days of October, adding to the $4 million cash on hand total she had at the end of September. In addition, Angle has raised $230,000 online since midnight last night. Angle's latest FEC report shows that she spent more than $12 million in the third quarter; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, meanwhile, has about $4 million in his warchest.

* Several Republican Senate candidates turned in big fundraising reports today. Tops among them was Wisconsin businessman Ron Johnson, who pulled in $3.3 million in the third quarter, including about $2 million in September alone. Republicans outraised Democrats in the New Hampshire, Missouri, North Carolina, Washington, Louisiana and Pennsylvania races. Democrats got a strong quarter from Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), who raised $2.7 million.

* The NRSC is up with a new TV ad in the Kentucky Senate race linking state Attorney General Jack Conway (D) to President Obama. The DSCC, meanwhile, is launching an ad in Pennsylvania tying former Rep. Pat Toomey (R) to China.

* Obama and Vice President Biden campaigned for Delaware Senate nominee Chris Coons (D) in Wilmington today. Obama said that in the past 24 months, "the single best decision that I have made was selecting Joe Biden as my running mate."


* Obama travels to Boston on Saturday to headline a rally for Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D). On Sunday, the Obamas visit Columbus to stump for Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D), the first time the two have campaigned together since the 2008 campaign.

* Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) and Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele headline a rally in Anaheim, Calif., tomorrow.

* More third-quarter fundraising reports will be rolling in over the next few hours and days after tonight's FEC reporting deadline. Keep an eye on numbers from Illinois Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias (D) and Rep. Mark Kirk(R), among others.

* The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has filed its first independent expenditure on behalf of Rep. Martin Heinrich (D) in New Mexico's 1st district, a sign that the freshman congressman could be in trouble.

* The debates keep coming: Tonight brings Senate debates in Florida and Missouri and a gubernatorial debate in Minnesota. On Saturday, Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidates face off, and on Sunday, there are West Virginia and New Hampshire Senate debates as well as Maine and Pennsylvania gubernatorial showdowns. Also, don't forget the Colorado Senate debate on NBC's "Meet the Press" and the Delaware Senate debate on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. The Fix's full list of debates to watch is here.


It's aloha Friday, no work 'til Monday.
