Paul Ryan has raised $6 million in the 3rd quarter and will soon report it has raised $39 million for House Republicans in the first ten months of 2017, Politico first reported Thursday morning in Politico Playbook.

What it means: Ramping up to the 2018 midterms, the Republicans are in "good shape," Kevin Seifert, Executive Director of Team Ryan, said in an email. "Speaker Ryan's supporters – from grassroots activists to donors – are fired up by the prospect of fixing our broken tax code for the first time in a generation," Seifert said.

Ryan has sent nearly $30 million to the NRCC this year, a nearly $5 million increase from August, a former aide to Ryan's political arm told Axios and a current Ryan political aide confirmed. The NRCC has raised $72 million in 2017, per Politico.

Up next for Ryan are trips to Texas and New York for additional fundraising.

President Trump announced late Tuesday that the White House attempt to halt federal agencies' anti-racism training would be expanded to block federal contractors from "promoting radical ideologies that divide Americans by race or sex."

Why it matters: The executive order appears to give the government the ability to cancel contracts if anti-racist or diversity trainings focused on sexual identity or gender are organized. The memo applies to executive departments and agencies, the U.S. military, federal contractors and federal grant recipients.
