Congressional fundraising deadline looms
From CNN's Robert Yoon

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Candidates for the U.S. Senate and House are furiously beefing up their campaign bank accounts today before a midnight Saturday reporting deadline set by the Federal Election Commission. These third-quarter fundraising totals, which will not be released to the public until next month, will be used by campaigns, parties, and news organizations to assess candidates' financial strength heading into the final weeks of the hotly contested mid-term elections.

As of the last reporting deadline on June 30, Senate candidates had raised a total of $350 million ($190 million by Democrats, $154 million by Republicans), and House candidates had raised at total of $544 million ($246 million by Democrats, $296 million by Republicans).
