* The Republican Governors Association raised a stunning $31 million in the third quarter and has $31.5 million on hand. In the same period, the Democratic Governors Association took in $10 million and now has $13 million in the bank.

* The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $15.9 million in September while the National Republican Congressional Committee took in $11.2 million in the same period, marking the second straight month that the Democratic committee outraised its Republican counterpart. The DCCC has $41.6 million on hand to the NRCC's $19 million.

* Former Rep. Rob Portman (R) raised $2.85 million in the third quarter and has $6.25 million on hand for his Ohio Senate bid against Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher (D). Fisher has yet to release his third-quarter numbers.

* After previously blaming a casting agent, the National Republican Senatorial Committee acknowledged today that its vendor, Jamestown Associates, was responsible for language calling for "hicky blue collar workers" in a West Virginia Senate TV ad. The NRSC said it "immediately fired" the vendor upon learning that it was responsible for the language.

* A Momentum Analysis poll conducted for Rep. Chris Carney's (D-Pa.) campaign shows Carney leading former U.S. Attorney Tom Marino (R) 48 percent to 41 percent among likely voters. The internal survey comes as a Wilkes-Barre Times Leader poll shows Marino leading Carney 44 percent to 38 percent among likely voters.


* Tonight's Nevada Senate debate could be the make-or-break moment for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle (R). The hour-long showdown starts at 9 p.m. Eastern and will be carried live by C-SPAN. Other debates happening include the Illinois, Maine, Idaho, New Hampshire and Colorado gubernatorial debates and the Kentucky, Missouri and Washington state Senate debates. Get the latest here.

* Obama's youth town hall airs at 4 p.m. on BET, CMT and MTV; Vice President Biden stumps for Rep. Brad Ellsworth's (D) Indiana Senate bid and later hosts a Hispanic Heritage Month reception at the Naval Observatory.

* Worth noting: Amid all the talk of triage at the DCCC, national Democrats are still putting resources behind Virginia Democratic Reps. Tom Perriello and Glenn Nye and Maryland Rep. Frank Kratovil.

* Quinnipiac releases its latest poll in the Connecticut gubernatorial race tomorrow morning.
