The NRA’s PAC raked in $1.three million in total contributions all through September, an improve of nearly $400,000 from its prior month, with an overwhelming majority of its money haul coming from little donors.

Senators Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) and Cory Booker (D., N.J.) have each indicated help for O’Rourke’s program.
