The Congressional Leadership Fund is pulling its planned TV advertising for Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman and Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop, Politico first reported and Axios has confirmed. The combined $3.1 million initially invested in these races will be redistributed elsewhere.

Why it matters: Both are tough races and Coffman's district was recently moved to favor Democrats. Moving money away from vulnerable GOP incumbents suggests that the party sees these races as a lost cause, but the NRCC is still advertising in both of them.

Why it matters: The revelation comes roughly two weeks before Election Day. Ratcliffe said Iran has sent threatening emails to Democratic voters this week in states across the U.S. and spread videos claiming that people can vote more than once.
