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.
