EARLIER ON THE FIX
WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED
* President Obama has cut a radio ad for Rep. Kendrick Meek's (D) Florida Senate bid in which he calls Meek "a powerful voice for Floridians."
* Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) announced endorsements of a number of GOP candidates including West Virginia Senate nominee John Raese.
* Businessman Rick Snyder (R) is up with a new TV ad in the Michigan gubernatorial race touting his record on job creation.
* South Dakota state Rep. Kristi Noem (R) raised $1.1 million in the third quarter, an impressive sum that makes her well-positioned to take on Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D) this fall.
* The National Republican Congressional Committee has spent $7.8 million on TV ads this week, marking the third straight week in which the committee has outspent its Democratic counterpart on ads. Democrats are reserving the majority of their resources for the last two weeks of the campaign.
WHAT YOU SHOULDN'T MISS
* If it's Monday, it's Senate debates galore. Candidates are facing off tonight in states including Indiana, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Colorado and Kentucky. For details on all the upcoming match-ups, check The Fix's 2010 Debate Guide.
* Obama headlines a fundraiser tonight at the home of former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning. House Minority Leader John Boehner visited the Sunshine State earlier today to raise money for GOP House nominee Allen West.
* A new CNN/Opinion Research survey shows that 66 percent of likely voters disapprove of the way Democratic leaders in Congress are handling their job, while 67 percent say the same of Republican leaders. How will those numbers play out 22 days from now?
* Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) will be the featured guest at Iowa state Rep. Jeff Kauffmann's (R) annual barbecue Wednesday night.
* On Oct. 26, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will headline the Indiana Republican Party's annual fall dinner, where he'll be introduced by another potential 2012 White House hopeful, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R).
