Midnight Tuesday marked the last quarterly fundraising deadline for U.S. House and Senate candidates before Election Day. In an effort to give their numbers a last-minute boost, candidates and party committees have been furiously fundraising, flooding the e-mail in-boxes of potential donors in recent days. Campaign finance reports aren’t due to the Federal Election Commission until Oct. 15, but expect numbers to trickle out soon from campaigns that meet or beat expectations for the fundraising period that ran from July 1 until the end of September. Those that missed the mark will likely sit on the results until the reporting deadline. Star Tribune

Beware, fellow plutocrats, the pitchforks are coming

From TED Talks:  Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up! Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France. Hear his argument about why a dramatic increase in minimum wage could grow the middle class, deliver economic prosperity … and prevent a revolution.
