Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign announced today that it raised over $19.1 million in the last three months from 384,000 donors.

Why it matters: It isn't the biggest Q2 haul among the 2020 Democrats (Mayor Pete has raised over $24 million) but it shows the strength of Warren's grassroots support.

  • Warren doesn't do big-dollar fundraisers. The majority of these donations came from small contributions online, the average being $28.
  • And her campaign says over 80% of their donors gave for the first time this quarter, suggesting her campaign is gaining traction.

The big picture: Warren is focused on talking to as many voters as possible, which may have helped with fundraising.

  • She's held 107 town halls, taken 36,000 selfies with voters at her events and visited 23 states plus Puerto Rico since announcing her presidential bid, her campaign said.
  • And she's invested heavily in staff, hiring a little more than 300 people, 60% of whom are in the four early states (Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina), per the campaign.

The Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC associated with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, raised more than twice as much this September as it did two years ago, according to a FEC filing that will go live Tuesday night.

By the numbers: The SLF raised $92 million in September, spent $105 million, and ended the month with $113 million cash on hand, as Republicans work to maintain their majority on Nov. 3.

Before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, human resources jobs were on the automation chopping block. Now they're essential.

The big picture: HR departments across the world have pulled off the incredible feat of turning companies from in-person to remote overnight, and as the pandemic continues to determine the future of work, HR has been elevated from a back-office function to a C-suite conversation.

Netflix stock sinks after Q3 subscriber miss

Netflix's stock was down more than 5% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the tech giant reported that it missed expectations on global subscriber growth for the quarter.

Why it matters: Netflix experienced explosive growth during the first half of the year. It wasn't expected to match that growth this quarter, when lockdowns lifted and after new competitive services had launched, but analysts were still expecting it to meet expectations of at least 3.3 million net new global subscribers.
