Former RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie (R) is ditching television ads in the state with less than three weeks before Election Day. Records posted on federal websites show Gillespie canceling or sharply reducing ad buys in multiple markets. (AP)

UNITY TICKET: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared Gillespie and Republican House nominee David Brat (R) Wednesday, bringing “together fringey tea-party characters with Bush administration vets in one big, warm tent sheltered from the storm of party in-fighting “¦ Brat and Gillespie looked unified—they even bro-hugged at one point.” (National Journal)

ENDORSEMENTS: The Washington Post gave its nod to Sen. Mark Warner (D), calling him part of “a pitifully short list of lawmakers who have made serious and sustained attempts at genuinely bipartisan solutions.” (Washington Post)

MONEY: Warner raised $2 million in Q3, and has $8 million in the bank. (release) Gillespie brought in $1.8 million, and has $2 million on hand. (release)
