CA-39: Nonprofit leaders Andy Thorburn (D), with help from his $2 million loan, raised the most out of any Democratic House challenger. He’s in a crowded Democratic primary, which includes a multimillion-dollar lottery winner, to face Rep. Ed Royce (R). (FEC)

MA-03: Former mayoral Chief of Staff Daniel Koh (D) “is getting some high-profile help. … Red Sox chairman Tom Werner also donated the maximum. The team’s co-owner and former president and CEO, Larry Lucchino, did it twice — $2,700 for Koh’s primary campaign and $2,700 for the general election. … Jonathan Gilula, the Red Sox’s executive vice president of business affairs, and Adam Grossman, the team’s chief marketing officer, also donated $1,500 and $1,000, respectively. Josh Kraft, the CEO of the Girls & Boys Club of Boston and son of Patriots owner Robert Kraft, gave $500.” Others donors: Seth Klarman, New Englands top GOP donor; former Gov. Bill Weld (R); Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes and Jared Kushner’s brother, Josh. (Boston.com)

MD-06: Former MD-08 candidate David Trone’s (D) “latest report showed him spending $735,000 … More than 40 percent of the spending by Trone campaign, about $300,000, went to one firm: Washington, D.C.-based Hickman Analytics, for general consulting and research. The firm, founded by veteran pollster Harrison Hickman … some of the payments made to Hickman Analytics go as far as back as last January, when Trone said publicly that he was ‘focused very heavily’ on a run for Montgomery County executive—while also not ruling out a congressional bid if” Rep. John Delaney (D) “stepped aside.” (Bethesda Magazine)

OH-16: Former NFL player Anthony Gonzalez (R) boasts donations from “NFL quarterback legend Peyton Manning, OSU and Chicago Bears veteran Kirk Barton, former Colts and Patriots wide receiver Austin Collie and Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam” in his third quarter haul, which topped $500,000. But state Rep. Tom Patton’s (R) “donor list was peppered with wealthy, well-known, establishment GOP donors who have a history of backing winning candidates,” too, including CEO of J.M. Smucker Co. and Invacare Chairman Mal Mixon and his wife. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)

WI-01: Ironworker Randy Bryce (D) “raised more than twice as much money in the third quarter than in the first six months of 2017 as he mounts a long-shot bid to upend” Speaker Paul Ryan. “Bryce’s campaign raised a little over $1 million from July 1 to Sept. 30 after collecting about $433,000 during the first six months of 2017.” That “places him 31st among House candidates in contributions received so far in the 2018 cycle.” (Center for Responsive Politics)
