With the deadline for third-quarter fundraising reports having arrived, candidate numbers continued to pour in Tuesday. Here's what stood out:

* Liz Cheney (R) raised more than $1 million for her challenge against Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.). That's a healthy haul for a state where advertising isn't expensive.

* As we reported earlier, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) had an impressive quarter, bringing in $2.5 million and outraising Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R).

* Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) nearly doubled up on her GOP opponent, bringing in $1.35 million between July and September. By comparison, Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy's campaign brought in about $700,000.

* Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) raised just over $1 million, putting him about even with Rep. Tom Cotton (R). Pryor has $4.4 million in the bank; Cotton has $1.8 million.

* House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a total $6.5 million for his reelection campaign and a joint fundraising committee in his name.

* Finally, Rep. Mel Watt (D-N.C.) raised just $10. Watt told CQ Roll Call his total was so low because he mostly halted his fundraising operation once he learned he would be nominated to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency.
