By Eric Kleefeld

Game on: Yesterday the DCCC pumped a staggering $11,859,818.68 into 32 races in 17 states, new filings with the FEC show. Here's what's noteworthy in the Dems' money drop:

* Notably, almost half of the cash — $5,042,707.45 — was spent on three House races in Pennsylvania alone, on ads targeting incumbents Jim Gerlach, Curt Weldon and Mike Fitzpatrick. Meanwhile, the DCCC spent another $107,185.28 against incumbent Republican Don Sherwood.

* The DCCC made its first-ever buy — $332,601.56 — for ads targeting GOP candidate Michele Bachmann, who is fighting a challenge from surging Dem Patty Wetterling.

* Some $778,546.77 was pumped into three races in Ohio, targeting GOP Reps. Steve Chabot, Deborah Pryce and Joy Padgett.

* And $649,694.19 went to three races in Indiana, targeting GOP Reps. Chris Chocola, John Hostettler and Mike Sodrel.
