Emily’s List and Planned Parenthood were numbers six and eight on the list of top ten spenders in September. Combined, the two single issue groups spent just under $4 million to help candidates that support abortion rights policies….

Planned Parenthood… contributed $1 million…  to [Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry] McAuliffe, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee….

Emily’s List spent close to $2 million during the month, mostly for what appears to be fundraising expenses…. Emily’s List gave directly to at least 32 candidates…. The group’s biggest beneficiary in September: Alison Lundergan Grimes, a Democrat from Kentucky looking to unseat Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. Emily’s List gave her $16,000.
