The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised its Republican counterpart by $1.3 million in February, bringing in a record $6.4 million for the month.

That included more than 80,000 online donations to the DCCC, raising a record $1.6 million.

The NRCC brought in $5.1 million, the best February showing the committee's had since 2006, and had $24.8 million cash on hand with no debt at the end of the month.

The DCCC had $34.4 million cash on hand at the end of February — more than twice as much cash as it had at the same point last cycle — and no debt. For the cycle, the DCCC has outraised the NRCC by about $17 million.

At this same point in 2012, the DCCC had $16.3 million in the bank. While the group's in a stronger financial position than it was last cycle, it's also facing an increasingly difficult political climate as it pursues the 17 seats it needs to win control of the House.
